Optional Certification Trades & Occupations

An individual is permitted to work in an optional certification trade if the employer deems the individual to have the skills and knowledge expected of a certified journeyperson in the trade.

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.
