Choosing a training provider

ITA recognizes training delivered by ITA-Recognized Training Providers.


As an apprentice, you need to choose where you want to take the technical training for your program and register with the Training Provider.  You also need to make sure the course you choose is delivered by an ITA-Recognized Training Provider so it can be counted toward your apprenticeship.
