Apprenticeship Exemption Test
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 apprentices who are learning a skilled trade to bypass in-class studies if their course work marks are over 70%.
To be eligible for an apprenticeship program at Sheridan, you must be employed and sponsored by your employer.
