Optional Certification Trades and Occupations

Individuals are permitted to work in optional certification trades if the employer deems the individual to have the skills and knowledge expected of a certified journeyperson in the trade. Employers may employ uncertified journeypersons and use uncertified journeypersons to supervise and train apprentices on the job. An employee working in an optional certification trade and learning the trade MUST become a registered apprentice if that employee is to work in the trade.

Designated occupations do not require a certificate or participation in a training program to work in and learn the occupation.
