Apprenticeship Exemption Test Requirements
Eligible applicants must possess all the entry-level requirements for the trade they wish to obtain exemption. Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program participants may also write Apprenticeship Exemption Tests. Exemption tests must be written in sequential order and without any omissions.
Successful completion of an Apprenticeship Exemption Test requires a grade of 70% or higher. After successfully completing an Apprenticeship Exemption Test, students have two years to become a registered apprentice.
If a student has not obtained a grade of 70% or higher they must wait three months before being permitted to re-write the exemption test.
Most exemption tests take three hours to complete and the minimum age to write an exemption test is 16.
