Apprenticeship Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about apprenticeship programs, refunds and lockers? Read the Apprenticeship FAQs below.

In order to become an apprentice in Ontario, a person will need to find themselves an employer who I willing to teach them the trade within their company. Once an apprentice has worked a minimum of 1 year, they may contact the Ministry of Trades and register themselves an apprentice within the province.

Apprenticeship training is approved by the Ministry of Trades, once an apprentice has worked a specific number of hours with an employer, their training consultant within the Ministry of Trades will provide them with an offer letter of in-class training. A person cannot apply nor register themselves for any of the apprenticeship trainings without an offer letter from their training consultant first.

If a student has registered themselves into one of the apprenticeship trainings at the college without ministry approval, they will be removed and refunded minus an administration fee of $100.

Humber College is a training facility for the apprenticeship programs and does not have any access to the Ministry of Trades internal information as they are separate entities. Please contact your training consultant at the Ministry for information on your offer letter.

Please contact the Ministry of Trades directly for further assistance: 1-800-387-5656

Parking and locker sale information will be sent to you via email approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of your training.

An orientation package will be sent to you via email approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of your intake. The package will include information pertaining to: Start and end dates, orientation time and location, information regarding books, parking and lockers as well as accessibility services.

Your first day of apprenticeship intake will begin with your orientation, please follow the time and room number found in your orientation package.

You may pick up your parking pass before your orientation on the first day of training; please ensure that you have a piece of government issued photo ID as the security guard on duty will not release the pass without proper identification by the permit holder.

Please wait until your first week of classes to obtain the reference code, or refer to your Confirmation of Classroom training letter. If you have yet to receive this letter, you will be receiving shortly as it is sent directly from the ministry.

Unfortunately we are not permitted to save or guarantee seats for apprentices. Please contact the Ministry of Trades directly to inquire as to why you have yet to receive an offer letter.

Credits cannot be transferred into any of the apprenticeship trainings, because the programs are under the Ministry of Trades with a specific curriculum there is no way to be excused from any of the courses.

It is strongly advised that you contact the Skills for Change offices as they are able to help newcomers who have prior trade experience from their native country.

This is the number for the nearest office which is in Brampton, they will be able to provide you with more information and assistance: 905-595-1675

Troubleshooting tips: 

  1. Please use a desktop computer and ensure that you are using either Google Chrome or Firefox as other browsers are not fully compatible with the Humber website.
  2. If you have successfully signed in or created an account, please completely close that webpage when prompted by the pop-up window; minimizing the page or keeping the tab open will not permit you to continue through the registration.
  3. If you receive a message stating there is already an account for you on file or in the system; please contact the Registrar’s office (enquiry@humber.ca or 416-675-5000); they will be required to search the system for a possible previous account or create an account for you to bypass this error message.

We cannot accept payment in person nor over the phone for any of the apprenticeship trainings or post-secondary programs at Humber. Please note that debit Visa or debit MasterCard are not accepted methods of payment on the Humber website. If you would like to pay off any outstanding balances found on your account and do not have a credit card accessible to you at this time, you may pay through web or in-person banking; your account number is your student number (the number that begins with “N”) and the payee is Humber College.

Saving seats is not permitted, the system will remove students with outstanding fees from the training within 24-48 hours, please ensure that you make your payment as soon as possible to avoid losing your seat.

Students must keep track of their own absences and will not be provided this number by any staff or faculty; during orientation all apprenticeship students are given an Academic Handbook which refers to absences. Each Program Coordinator will also explain the importance of students attending their daily training, unless a student is ill or has an emergency. Students who are ill or have experienced an emergency situation must contact their Program Coordinator and their instructor(s) for that day missed; and must provide a doctor’s note or formal proof of absence immediately upon arrival back to school.

Formal proofs of absence may be discussed with your Program Coordinator during your orientation.

On your orientation day, a representative from the North Campus bookstore will be on site and selling the required textbooks immediately following your orientation; this is the only time you will be able to purchase on site.
