This section will help you understand how ITA exams work. It also has tips to help you prepare for exams throughout your apprenticeship.
You will take 3 types of exams during your apprenticeship:
Exams during your technical training
Most of the exams in your apprenticeship will be included in your in-class technical training. Your technical training results (including those exam marks) will automatically be sent to ITA and form part of your apprenticeship record.
Standard Level Exams
Many trades also have ITA level exams. Level exams are the same for every apprentice at any training provider in the province. These exams are scheduled on your last day of in-school training and will count for 20% of your mark.
ITA Final Certification Exams
When all levels of your technical training are complete, ITA will come to your school and administer the final certification exam to your whole class. This exam will cover all levels and theory in your apprenticeship.
Some trades do not require formal technical training in addition to work experience. If you are in one of these trades, contact ITA when you are ready to schedule your final certification exam.
