Employer Approving Apprenticeship Applications

MyTradesecrets (MTS) Employer access allows the employer's designated contact to provide information online. Employers also have the availability to pay for apprenticeship applications online.

Online Employer Consent For An Apprentice Application

When a person wishes to become an apprentice, their employer enters into an apprenticeship contract. To achieve this, a contact designated by the employer must go online, complete the application and consent to the supplied information. The following steps have been created to ensure security and privacy for employers and apprentices.

Step 1 – Employer Contact Email Address

The employer must give apprentices the email address of the designated contact. This contact has the authority to act on the employer's behalf to recommend credit for any of the apprentice's previous work experience and agree to enter into an apprenticeship contract.

Step 2 – Applicant Creates Online Application

When apprentices have completed their portion of the online application, the employer's designated contact receives an email with a link to that application.

Step 3 - Employer Access To Online Application

The email received by the employer's designated contact provides a link to access the apprenticeship contract online.

First time employer contacts must create a MyAlberta Digital ID Basic Account, if one does not already exist. To create your MyAlberta Digital ID Basic Account, you must accept the Terms and Conditions, create a user profile and an account. See also Frequently Asked Questions about accessing your MyTradesecrets account using MyAlberta Digital ID.
