If you are a high school student who wants to get a head start by becoming part of the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP), then you need to speak to your Guidance Counselor, Co-op Teacher or Technological Studies teacher about the first steps. They can help you to find a program that will best suit your needs.
You will need to make sure you have at least 16 credits, then take co-op so you can get a placement in your trade.
Finally, once you’ve decided that the trade is something you’d like to pursue, complete an OYAP application form so that you can enroll with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development.
