Trade School Bookings: Apprentices must notify the MTCU to confirm attendance at Trade School.


Trade School: – The JAC office must have results within two months of completion.

Out of Town: Pay stubs must be photocopied and submitted to the JAC office in order for hours to be credited.

Record of Hours: It is up to the apprentice to keep their record books up to date and to notify the JAC 2 weeks prior to term change.

Inappropriate Behaviour: If any behaviour problems take place on the job, an investigation will be done, including reports from Journeyman and the Foreman.


Educational Credits: Educational activities which have the prior approval of the JAC will be credited up to 1,000 hours.

Trade School Sessions: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced levels of Trade School must be completed successfully.

Hours credited for Trade School: Apprentices must provide proof of passing to the JAC in order to have hours credited against their contract.

Failure to Maintain Contact: The JAC will review apprentice contract if failure to keep in touch is left for a period of one year or longer.
