We are currently updating our systems to better serve our clients, and as a result there will be a delay in issuing journeyperson certificates and education credentials.

During this period, no certifications will be issued. Individuals can submit their proof of program completion
(i.e. record book hours) as per normal process, and AIT staff will continue to assess eligibility.
