Apprenticeships

Apprenticeship Training

Ontario’s Apprenticeship Certification Act recommends that those in the designated trades be employed and registered as apprentices with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. In addition to on-the-job training, all apprentices in these trades are required to attend classes in trade training and related academic subjects at an approved agency. Fleming College offers a variety of apprenticeship programs, combining the required practical experience and theory, led by fully qualified instructors. Facilities used are well-equipped, industrial technical shops.


Apprenticeship Exemption Exams

Fleming College is not currently offering these in-person exams, and the Ministry does not have an on-line testing option at this time. If you would like to be contacted once we begin offering these exams again, please email coned@flemingcollege.ca and provide your name and which exam you are interested in. You can also check back to this page for updates. Please contact your local Ministry Apprenticeship office to inquire about other institutions that may be offering these exams right now.
