Apprenticeship Trade Exemption

What is the Apprenticeship Trade Exemption?

The Ministry of Colleges and Universities (MCU) has authorized community colleges to administer the Apprenticeship Trade Exemption exams.

If you successfully complete a trade exemption test, you may be exempt from some of the formal, in-class instruction required for your apprenticeship.

Further information can be found at the MCU Training Office at 416-326-5800.
