Accelerated Level 1 OYAP

Level 1 OYAP offers a select number of students the very unique opportunity of accelerating their apprenticeship.  Two things are required to be considered for Level 1 OYAP: experience/skills and a Registered Training Agreement with an employer licensed in the Skilled Trade.

Students should plan well in advance for this opportunity.  To be successful, students should have already developed considerable experience and skill in their trade through related technology courses, co-op, volunteer, and work experience.

Some preparatory work is necessary for students to make connections with employers in the trade.  For a student to begin Level 1 training at the college they require an employer or Journeyperson to register them as an apprentice.  The paperwork for this can all be done through the school but the student is expected to seek out their employer.
