Provincial Apprenticeship Committee


PACs are responsible for making recommendations to the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AAIT) Board about the training and certification requirements and standards for Alberta's designated trades. They also act as a link between the LACs and the AAIT Board. 

Employers and employees are equally represented, with members appointed by the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board for terms of up to three years.

Committee members are responsible for:

  • making recommendations to the Board regarding apprenticeship training and certification,
  • monitoring the Local Apprenticeship Committees in their trade,
  • identifying the training needs and content for their trade,
  • determining if programs and courses provided outside apprenticeship are equivalent to an Alberta apprenticeship program, and
  • helping to settle disputes between apprentices and their employers in matters relating to the Apprenticeship and Industry Training Act.
