Apply to Become a Member of the My Skilled Trades Network!

Are you a final period apprentice, certified journeyperson, supervisor, employer, trainer, or member of a stakeholder organization with knowledge of one or more skilled trades or Alberta's apprenticeship system?

Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT) and the Alberta Board of Skilled Trades is building a community of Albertans with experience and knowledge related to one or more of Alberta’s designated trades or apprenticeship education programs, called the My Skilled Trades Network (MySTN). This community is an opportunity for interested skilled trades experts to share their ideas, opinions, and expertise with AIT on the future of their trades.

Interested Albertans can now apply to become subject matter expert and be eligible to receive invitations to contribute their perspectives. You may have an opportunity to provide input through surveys, small group meetings, and individual consultation. In addition, qualified individuals in MySTN may be called upon to help evaluate apprentice’s practical skills and work experience.

Some examples of topics that you may be called upon to provide feedback for include:

  • Contributing to what is taught and tested in apprenticeship education.
    • This could include feedback on course outlines, curriculum guides, period exams, and red seal exams.
    • Certain individuals may also evaluate exams and apprentice’s work experience.
  • Providing input on what activities should restricted to those certified in your trade.

The frequency of these communications will depend upon the level of activity and pressing, necessary change happening in your trade. You may also choose the level of engagement you prefer and unsubscribe from the network should you choose to in the future.

If you are interested in contributing your ideas, please apply now!
