More on training supports

Attention Apprentice Applicants
Thank you for your interest in Apprentice Training Supports. We will be upgrading our online application system between March 28 and April 1, 2019. If you have apprentice training that starts after April 1st, please begin the online application process after this date. For questions about the upgrade, contact ELMSD.EPBCRenewal@gov.bc.ca.

An apprentice is someone who is registered in an Industry Training Authority (ITA) approved training program. Apprentices who meet Employment Insurance (EI) client eligibility requirements are eligible for financial supports through the program while participating in the classroom technical training components of their apprenticeship training. Most apprentices will have an employer sponsor with whom they are completing the on-the-job components of their apprentice training.

Apprentices are Non-Case Managed and are served through the Apprentice Supports Online.

Historically, approximately 80% of apprentices applying for financial supports have not required case management services. In the EPBC, this is expected to continue and these apprentices will be served through the Apprentice Training Supports Online.
