AIT Training Plan

If you have attempted the theory or practical exams two or more times in the same trade with Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT), and any prior exam attempt resulted in a mark of at least 60%, you may complete an AIT Training Plan. After you complete and save your training plan, you can upload the plan into the “Document” section of your MyTradesecrets (MTS) account.

Your AIT Training Plan should include:

  • start and end dates of your studies, and
  • at least 40 hours of study time in one of the following forms:
    • self-study with Individual Learning Modules (ILMs) or other materials,
      • Identify the study materials, the sections/chapters and how many hours you are spent on each topic.
    • working directly with and/or tutoring from a certified journeyperson or an employer,
      • list the tasks performed, the journeyperson's name and certificate number.

Other important information:

  • You must provide your AIT Training Plan for review.
  • The training plan is evaluated and a decision on an additional attempt is based on the quality of your training plan.
  • Approval of your request for an additional exam attempt is not guaranteed.
  • A maximum of three exam attempts is permitted under one existing application in the same trade.

For more information, contact an Apprenticeship and Industry Training office.

Please use your exam results letter or the exam counselling sheet to create your AIT Training Plan
