What is Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship is an agreement between an individual who wants to learn a skill and an employer who needs a skilled worker. It is a combination of in-school training and on-the-job experience. As an apprentice, about 90% of your time is spent learning practical skills on the job, while supervised by a qualified journeyperson. The rest is spent learning theoretical and technical aspects of your trade. Over time, the apprenticeship system of training has proven to be one of the world’s most successful ways to learn.

Admission Requirements
Prospective students must be registered apprentices under the Trades Qualification and Apprenticeship Act (TQAA) with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (M.T.C.U.) in the Roofer – Trade Code 449A.
