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 a Training Plan and upload the information into the "Document" section of your MyTradesecrets (MTS) account.

    • From the assessment approval date, you have 18 months to complete ALL program requirements, including the Training Plan, if applicable.
  • You must provide your Training Plan for review.
  • The Training Plan is evaluated and a decision on an additional attempts 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.

The 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 a certified journeyperson or an employer,
      • list the tasks performed, the journeyperson's name and certificate number.
