Maintain your Records

To make sure you receive all the information you need about your apprenticeship, and that you recieve credit for your hours, be sure to maintain your records and submit all required information in a timely manner. 

Keep your contact information up to date

Update your mailing address, phone number, text number or email address through your MyTradesecrets account if your information has changed.

  • This ensures all relevant information reaches you.  

Update your employer information when you change employers

If you leave your employer or you start working for a new employer, submit your Notice of Release or Notice of Acceptance through your Mytradesecrets account. 

  • For your work experience/on-the-job training hours to be applied to your apprenticeship program, your employer of record must sign-off the hours. If you change employers without submitting your Notice of Release or Notice of Acceptance, you may not be able to receive credit for hours. 

Submit your Record Book at the end of each period

At the end of each period of your apprenticeship, complete and submit your Record Book (blue book) through your MyTradesecrets account. 

  • Ensure both you and your employer have completed the appropriate sections, as instructed in the record book, to document your hours of on-the-job training and competencies practiced. 

Cancel your apprenticeship if you're no longer pursuing your trade

If you are no longer pursuing your apprenticeship in the trades, please advise your local Apprenticeship and Industry Training office so your Contract of Apprenticeship can be cancelled.
