Apprenticeship Program

Apprenticeship is a hands-on training program for people who want to work in skilled trades occupations. The in school portion of the Marine Engine Technician program is offered by Georgian College, Midland Campus.

Apprenticeship training provides access to well-paying jobs that demand a high level of skill, judgement and creativity. Apprentices are paid while gaining work experience, and their wages increase with their level of skill. Apprentices are workers, so you will need to find an employer who will train you.

As a registered apprentice, you will receive most of your training on the job. The rest of your training is in school and is provided by an approved training delivery agent.

Most apprenticeships take two to five years to complete, depending on the trade or occupation.
