Installer Apprenticeship


At the time of registration, the apprentice receives an Apprenticeship Training Standard. The Apprenticeship Training Standard outlines the skills training objectives or competencies to be learned on the job. These competencies equip an apprentice to work in the trade as a certified skilled worker or "journeyperson." The employer or trainer of an apprentice signs the relevant section of the training standard to indicate the progress of the apprentice in learning individual training objectives. This signature demonstrates that an apprentice has learned the skills established by industry that are essential for being a skilled worker.


Floor covering installer apprentices require two levels of theoretical training. Depending on availability at the chosen delivery agency, this training may be completed in one of the following ways:

  • block release (full-time, 10 weeks for each level)
  • day release (1 day per week)
  • part-time (generally night-school programs)
