What is an AIT Identifier (AIT ID)?

Clients can find their AIT ID (sometimes referred to as an "AIT Number" or "Apprenticeship ID") on their apprenticeship card, record book, or any correspondence received from Apprenticeship. If they just submitted an online application, the AIT ID will be in the confirmation email they receive.  Or, if applicable, it is also on the journeyperson card.

The AIT ID will usually be a 6 or 7 digit number and may be found in the following format: 123/123456.   The AIT ID is the number following the 'slash' i.e. 123456.

If clients cannot find their AIT ID on any of these documents, they must call AIT.  The toll-free number is 1-800-248-4823 or click for information on apprenticeship offices.
