PREFACE

This training standard was developed by the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities (MTCU), in partnership with the Provincial Advisory Committee and in consultation with representatives from the industry. This document is intended to be used by apprentice, supervisor/trainer and sponsor/employer as a “blueprint” for training and as a prerequisite for completion and certification.

This training document becomes the apprentice’s only record of workplace training performance.

Supervisor/trainer and apprentice are required to sign off and date the skills following each successful acquisition, unless a skill is shaded (optional).

The care and maintenance of this training document are the joint responsibility of the

apprentice and the sponsor/employer. By signing off the skill, the supervisor/trainer and the apprentice are indicating that the apprentice has demonstrated competence in the skill. This training standard has been developed specifically for documenting the apprentice’s

acquisition of skills in the trade.

Please Note: Apprenticeship Training and Curriculum Standards were developed by the

Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU). As of April 8th, 2013, the Ontario College of Trades (College) has become responsible for the development and maintenance of these standards. The College is carrying over existing standards without any changes.

However, because the Apprenticeship Training and Curriculum Standards documents were developed under either the Trades Qualification and Apprenticeship Act (TQAA) or the

Apprenticeship and Certification Act, 1998 (ACA), the definitions contained in these documents may no longer be accurate and may not be reflective of the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009 (OCTAA) as the new trades legislation in the province. The College will update these definitions in the future.

Meanwhile, please refer to the College’s website (www.collegeoftrades.ca) for the most accurate and up-to-date information about the College. For information on OCTAA and its regulations, please visit: www.collegeoftrades.ca/about/legislation-and-regulations.
