How does the new Class Registrations tab in MyTradesecrets help me?

You are able to see classes that you are eligible to attend, and sort by:

  • date of class,
  • seat availability,
  • class location,
  • training provider and
  • classes open for registration.

You are able to filter by:

  • class location,
  • training provider,
  • class start date and
  • classes open for registration

Only classes you are eligible for will appear in the list.

What appears on the Class Registrations tab in MyTradesecrets?

Under the Class Registrations tab in your MyTradesecrets account you will see:

  • a list of all the classes you are registered in,
  • the classes you are waitlisted for by the training provider (NOTE: only if the training provider is using the waitlist function), and
  • a list of all of your eligible classes. 

How do I register for a class?

If there is a seat available, the Register button will appear. Click the button to register for the class.

If there are no seats available in that class, you will see the Add to Waitlist link.

If the training provider does not provide MTS online class registrations, the Manual RegistrationOnly link will be displayed above the Register button. Both the button and the link will send you to the same information page with details on how to register with the training provider. 

Can I register online with a training provider through my MyTradesecrets account?

Through the Class Registrations tab in your MyTradesecrets account, you can access a training provider’s online class registration system, if it’s available.

Currently NAIT, Medicine Hat College, SAIT and Red Deer College provide online class registration while AIT is continues to work with other training providers to implement their online services over the next year.

How will I know if room has opened up in one of the classes that I’m interested in?

The button on MyTradesecrets changes to Register and no longer shows the Add to Waitlist button.

Can I register for two classes at once? For example, I’d like to register for second period technical training and then complete third period right afterward.

Yes, you can register for a second class starting on the 5th day of your current class.  At that time, the next technical training period classes you are eligible for will be listed.

If I can find out about my eligible classes though MyTradesecrets account, can I also find out about my marks?

Yes, MyTradesecrets has a Marks tab where you will find your marks. Your marks are displayed as soon as they are available.

Do I pay for registration through MyTradesecrets?

No. Registration fees are collected by the training provider. The training provider’s information page on MyTradesecrets contains registration information. 

If I’m not eligible, how will I know that I can’t register for any classes?

If you aren’t eligible to register for any classes, you will see a message that there are no eligible classes to display. There may also be an Alert posted on the MyTradesecrets Landing Page under Important Information on your MyTradesecrets account telling you to contact AIT. 

Can I see how many seats are left in a particular class?

No. If there is a seat available, the Register button will appear. If the training provider does not offer MTS online class registrations, the Manual Registration Only link will be displayed above the Register button. Both the button and the link will send you to the same information page with details on how to register with a training provider.

Why is the class that I am waitlisted for not showing up on my Class Registrations tab?

Not all training providers are using the waitlist in MyTradesecrets.  They may be using the waitlist process within their own system so it would not appear on your MyTradesecrets account.  If you want to confirm your waitlist, contact the training provider directly.

I’m registered for a class but need to cancel. What should I do?

You can cancel your class until the start date in the Class Registrations tab in your MyTradesecrets account. If you need to cancel on the first day of class, or after the class has started, contact your training provider directly about your options. 

I’m registered for a class but need to change to a different start date at the same training institution. What should I do?

Contact your training provider directly about changing your class to a different start date. You cannot change a class from the Class Registrations tab in your MyTradesecrets account.

You may be unable to change classes if the new class you wish to take is full. You should ensure space is available in the class you want BEFORE cancelling your original seat. If you cancel the seat first, there may not be a seat available to transfer into and you may lose your original seat. (When a course cancellation is complete, that seat immediately becomes available to other apprentices.) Contact your training provider for help holding a seat for you (if available).

Once you have a seat on hold for the class you want, you can cancel your class through your training provider or through the Class Registrations tab in your MyTradesecrets account.

If you cannot attend the class you originally registered for and have to cancel, you can cancel it until the start date through the Class Registrations tab in your MyTradesecrets account. If you would like to cancel on the first day of class or after the class has started, contact your training provider directly about available options. 

I’m registered for a class but need to transfer to a class at a different training provider. Is that possible?

Yes, however, you cannot transfer classes from one training provider to another from the Class Registrations tab in your MyTradesecrets account.

You must contact the training provider where you wish to attend a class and request a seat be held in the class you want BEFORE cancelling your original seat. You may not be able to register if classes are full.

If you cancel the class you are registered in first, there may not be a seat to transfer into and you may lose your original seat. (When a cancellation is complete the seat immediately becomes available to other apprentices.)

Once you have a seat on hold where you want to attend, you can cancel your class you are registered in through the Class Registrations tab in your MyTradesecrets account or contact your current training provider to cancel your class. Then, contact your new training provider to proceed with registering you in the new class.
