Frequently asked questions:

Does the Apprenticeship program offer in-person learning?

Our ApprenticeshipReady program is delivered only in-person so that our instructors can help you learn the skills you need.

I'm a second language learner. Do I need to provide proof of my CLBA test results?

Yes. You must have attained a CLBA level 6 in speaking and listening, and you need to be able to provide a copy of your CLBA test results. Note that reading and writing will be assessed at your intake assessment.

What type of identification is required?

You must provide a valid social insurance number and photo ID to validate your date of birth and mailing address to participate in any PALC program.

Do I need to have a computer to participate in PALC programs?

All of our classes are in-person, so it is not necessary to have your own computer.

What are your ApprenticeshipReady program hours? Do I have to attend all classes?

ApprenticeshipReady program hours are between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

How long will the ApprenticeshipReady program take?

Programs are individualized to meet your specific needs, so program length will be different for each student.

What if I struggle with math?

Don’t worry! Many of our students enter the program with low math scores. The instructors will assess where you are in math and work one-on-one in a small group setting to help you improve. Many students are amazed at how quickly they gain confidence.

What apprenticeship programs do you help me prepare for?

Our programs are individualized and can help you develop the required academic and employment skills needed before starting any apprenticeship.

Will you help me find a sponsor?

PALC will help you develop your academic and employment skills and help you understand the steps required to become an apprentice, but you will have to find your own sponsor.

Do I need to have my grade 12?

Some trades require you to have a grade 12, and others may not! We can help you determine what requirements you will need.
