Additional information

Apprenticeship training programs have a reputation for excellence and feature outstanding hands-on instruction, expert faculty with years of industry experience, and state-of-the-art facilities. No apprentice program in Canada offers a better pathway to a career as a skilled, well-paid tradesperson or journeyperson.

Depending on your experience and knowledge of your trade, you may choose to write the Apprenticeship Exemption Test (AET). The AET provides a chance for students who are learning a skilled trade to bypass in-class studies if they score over 70%.

Campus location change: STC moving to Davis Campus in fall 2017

Currently, Sheridan Skilled Trades programs are held at the Skills Training Centre in Oakville, Ontario. In the fall of 2017, all Skilled Trades programs will be moving to the Davis Campus in Brampton, Ontario.

The new facilities will integrate students into the Davis Campus environment, which includes improved services such as food outlets and an on-campus residence. Larger workshops will provide opportunities to bring in new equipment, and proximity to the engineering programs will create cross-disciplinary opportunities.
