Apprenticeship is a system of learning by doing. It consists of on-the-job training with an employer and related class studies in college. Apprenticeships vary from two to five years, depending on the trade. Centennial apprenticeship programs will prepare you for an  exciting future as a skilled professional in the transportation field, one of Canada's largest industries.

We offer traditional apprenticeship training and Modified Apprenticeship Programs (MAPs), with special features for qualified applicants.

  • An earn while you learn training approach
  • Professors with extensive, current experience in industry
  • state-of-the-art facilities at the province's largest transportation training centre
  • You may qualify for income support while in school through Employment Insurance Canada benefits or training allowance
  • In-school training is geared to on-the-job experience

At the conclusion of your apprenticeship, you can write the exam for your Certificate of Qualification. Passing the Certificate of Qualification exam means you can qualify for a Certificate of Apprenticeship from the Ministry of Advanced Education & Skills Development, and that you are certified in your chosen occupation.

Please note: You cannot apply directly to the college for admission to a traditional apprenticeship. You must first be currently employed as an apprentice.
