Make a difference. Get involved.

There are many ways you can get involved in Alberta’s apprenticeship and industry training system.

Network of Industry Committees

Alberta’s apprenticeship and industry training system needs people who:

  • know their trade or occupation,
  • take personal pride in their certification and/or training, and
  • seek to ensure the training and certification in their trade or occupation continues to grow and improve.

To participate in the process of ensuring Alberta’s apprenticeship and industry training system continues to represent training and certifications that meet world-class standards, complete a membership application or contact a field representative at any of the 12 Apprenticeship and Industry Training Offices.
