Exit Package for a Student Who is a Registered Apprentice

  1. Keep the following documents from your school in a safe place:
    1. your Ontario Student Transcript
    2. your Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), your Ontario Secondary School Certificate (OSSC) or your Certificate of Accomplishment
    3. If you took Co-op, you may want to contact your Co-op Teacher for copies of your Work Education Agreement (WEA) and your Personalized Placement Learning Plan (PLP)
    4. If you took Special Education, you may want to contact your Special Education Teacher for a copy of your Individual Education Plan (IEP). It may be possible for you to get similar accommodations when you write your licensing exams.  For more information contact your MTCU Training Consultant.

  2. Upon graduation, provide your MTCU Training Consultant with the following items:
    1. a copy of your Ontario Student Transcript
    2. an update of your employment status
    • working full-time with your sponsoring employer
    • unemployed and looking for new employer sponsor in existing trade
    • unemployed and looking for employer sponsor in a different trade
    • or unemployed and registered in a related college or union diploma/certificate program or private career college

  3. Contact your MTCU Training Consultant re: MTCU’s In-School Training schedule.  Ask your Training Consultant how long you can expect to be on the wait list before you will receive an Offer of Classroom Training by mail. There may be a time-lapse of 6-12 months, but if you are employed as an apprentice in the interim, you will be learning on-the-job skills that will enhance your success in the In-school Training

  4. Apply to the Loans for Tools program. Contact your MTCU Training Consultant if you would like to take advantage of this interest-free loan to purchase tools for your trade. You will not be required to repay the loan until up to one year following completion of training.

  5. If you purchase tools as an apprentice mechanic in a Motive Power Trade, apply for a tax deduction. Apprentice mechanics may claim a deduction for the purchase of tools, with certification of their employer. The cost of eligible tools, less the greater of $1,000 or 5% of your income as an apprentice mechanic, may be deducted. Use the Canadian Revenue Agency T2200 - Declaration of Conditions of Employment form to apply for a rebate.

  6. Keep your Training Standards Manual in a secure place. Ask your employer to sign off on your competencies on a regular basis (approx. every 3-4 months). This is the only record of your skills/hours, so keep it safe!

  7. Contact your Training Consultant if you have questions about your apprenticeship. Be prepared to give your Social Insurance Number (SIN #) when you call MTCU.

  8. If you need help finding a job, visit Employment and Career Planning or contact your high school Guidance Counsellor.
