Preparing to challenge an Apprenticeship Exam?

Alberta registered apprentices who wish to advance and progress in their apprenticeship program have the following options:

  • Attend technical training,
  • If employed with an eligible Alberta employer, the employer may provide an Employer Recommends Exam Challenge letter requesting the apprentice to challenge the exam for that period of apprenticeship, or
  • If unemployed and the apprentice has enough work experience (months and hours) submitted for the period of apprenticeship, the apprentice can request to challenge the exam for that period of apprenticeship.

See below for how to request an apprenticeship exam challenge.
