2023-2024 Online Registration for Apprenticeship In-school Training 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Apprenticeship at  (902) 368-4460 or by email at jdburke@gov.pe.ca

Do I have to leave my job to attend in-school training?

Yes, your employer will release you to attend in-school training and allow you to return to work following the training.

Please Note:  For the Welder and Machinist Blended Learning Project, there is no requirement for EI eligibility and apprentices remain working while attending training.  Please contact your training officer for more information.

Am I eligible to attend training with cost assistance?

In order to attend block release training and have Skills PEI pay for your training you must:

  1. be a registered apprentice with the PEI Apprenticeship Section, Province of Prince Edward Island;
  2. be eligible for Employment Insurance; and
  3. be unemployed at the beginning of training.

Please Note:  For the Welder and Machinist Blended Learning Project, there is no requirement for EI eligibility and apprentices remain working while attending training.  Please contact your training officer for more information.

How long will it take to complete the registration?

It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. You must complete the form in one sitting because the form cannot be saved.

Apprentices and employers should discuss the schedule before the apprentice registers for training.

When will I receive my training package?

You will receive your training package approximately 4 weeks before training begins.  Please fill out all forms as soon as possible and submit them to one of the SkillsPEI contacts on the form.

What if my trade is not listed on the schedule below?

If in-school training is not available on PEI, apprentices will need to take their training through New Brunswick or Nova Scotia colleges.  PEI apprenticeship must request these seats for you.  Please contact your training officer as soon as possible to ensure your name gets on a list as seats cannot be guaranteed.

The following class schedule for apprenticeship (block-release) training may be adjusted depending on response. If registration is below the minimum number required, a class may be cancelled or, where possible, combined with another class. You will be notified if the schedule changes after you have registered.

Please note: for maximum benefit from in-school apprenticeship training, the suggested number of hours in your log book should be:

  • Block 1: 1620 hrs
  • Block 2: 3240 hrs
  • Block 3: 4860 hrs
  • Block 4: 6480 hrs
