Electrical/Carpenter Apprenticeship Program
The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI), in partnership with First Nations Power Authority (FNPA), was awarded a Skills Development Fund grant by the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development to recruit, train, and place women and Indigenous people, two traditionally underrepresented groups, into skilled trades positions to support nuclear life-extension projects. This project, Indigenous & Women Skilled Trade Development Pathway to the Nuclear / Clean Energy Sector, will create education and employment opportunities in skilled trades, provide preemployment soft-skill and hard-skill training, experiential learning experiences, and potential future training opportunities within trade apprenticeships.
The Skilled Trades Program is a training workshop series that includes pre-employment training, union entrance testing, and an apprenticeship with a nuclear supplier company as an electrician or carpenter.
An apprenticeship is a pathway to a rewarding career in the trades. As an apprentice, you take classes and learn your trade by working under the direction of an experienced worker – and get paid while you do it.
The program is free, and funding is available for transportation, personal protective equipment, and childcare. Classroom/virtual training will commence this fall. Once successful, participants will be placed in an apprenticeship with a nuclear supplier company. Interested participants are required to fill out an application and security clearance form to be eligible.
