Skilled. Respected. In Demand. Skilled tradespeople are in demand in the New Brunswick labour force. And it is projected that over the next ten years there will be a shortage of tradespeople in Canada. So now is the time to explore a career in one of the province’s designated occupations.

Apprenticeship is your opportunity to turn your talents and passion into success! Apprenticeship is quality, affordable, post-secondary training that leads to certification as a journeyperson in a skilled occupation. It is the only career route where one can earn a wage while learning an occupation.  There are 52 apprenticeable occupations in New Brunswick. Most apprenticeship programs take two to four years to complete, and they combine approximately 80 per cent paid on-the-job training with 20 per cent technical/in-school learning.
