2021-22 Technical Training Registration Information

Apprenticeship Manitoba, in collaboration with the colleges, has finalized a technical training schedule for new classes being held between April 1, 2021 – March 31, 2022. Because of this, we have made an adjustment to the previous technical training registration timeline normally held in June/July, to open earlier this year, February 2021. This change is needed in order for apprentices to be able to register into classes opening in April but also, for the remainder of the 21-22 Course Schedule.

Apprenticeship Manitoba is working to provide the best client service despite some disruption in service delivery due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Apprenticeship Manitoba will only register clients online and over the phone at this time. Additionally, to overcome registration capacity concerns and ensure more timely access, the registration process will be modified so that registrations occur on a trade-by-trade basis. A trade registration schedule is posted below.

Be certain of the college and dates of training and always confirm technical training dates with your employer prior to making a registration payment. Fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Training Delivery

Training delivery continues to be a combination of online and in-person delivery for most trades. Some trades will have more online content delivered than others based on what is needed in each trade, and may vary by level of instruction being taught. This format may also be impacted by the capabilities of each training provider to provide services based upon their specific needs and abilities, as well as the current health restrictions that may be in place at any given time. Access to the appropriate electronic devices to ensure the best experiences with online delivery and content should be considered by each client. This typically includes a desktop, laptop or tablet and a reliable internet/Wi-Fi connection.

Apprenticeship Manitoba staff are working with training providers to provide options for training progression during an unprecedented time due to COVID-19 and will continue to accommodate as the situation progresses. Training will look a little different now than it did in the past. A hybrid instructional approach may be a reality for the foreseeable future, and may continue into the 2021-22 technical training schedule. Apprenticeship Manitoba will respond to the evolving situation in the best way possible. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

 

COVID-19 – Change to Service

The Province of Manitoba is taking proactive measures to help manage and minimize the spread of COVID-19, including social-distancing measures and mask/face-covering requirement. Apprenticeship Manitoba has been working with post-secondary institutions who deliver technical training to determine the best course of action to protect the health of apprentices, instructors and staff.

If you are currently enrolled in a technical training program, your institution will contact you with information on changes to your course.

If you are scheduled for an upcoming course, Apprenticeship Manitoba will contact you about options that may be available for your course.

Apprentices affected by course cancellations will receive a refund for their personal contribution.

In Person services for Apprenticeship Manitoba are not available at this time. Please contact us for assistance.
