Usage Considerations

* New apprentices include all apprentices registering during a single calendar year. The number includes those who are returning to do an additional apprenticeship after completing one or more apprenticeship programs in previous years, or continuing an apprenticeship in another trade for which they registered in a previous year. Apprentices who registered in more than one trade or branch of a trade within 2012, are counted here only once. The number does not include reinstated apprentices (unless reinstated in the same year). N/A = Not Applicable. Data does not exist in one or more of the specified years. Note 1: Natural gas compression technician became a designated trade on September 1, 2011. Note 2: Approximately 325 of the newly registered rig technician apprentices are from Canadian jurisdictions other than Alberta. Note 3: Effective April 1, 2011, the designation of the trade of tool and die maker is rescinded. As of May 1, 2009, contracts of apprenticeship were no longer accepted for registration.
