2022-23 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, 2022 – March 31, 2023. Please review the registration information carefully and pay special attention to the COVID-19 Vaccination Update for Apprentices attending Technical Training which can be found at the end of this information update.

Apprenticeship Manitoba is working to provide the best client service despite some disruption in service delivery due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Apprenticeship Manitoba continues to register clients online and over the phone only. 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 Table is posted below.

Training Delivery

Training delivery continues to be a combination of online and in-person delivery for most trades, however, there has been a recent pivot to more in-person training. We still ask our apprentices to be prepared for either delivery model when registering for a course and to also visit the Colleges’ website for vaccination mandate information prior to registering. Some trades may 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.
