|Description:||The machinist apprenticeship process requires time spent on the job and in-school training. A machinist trainee must complete a four-year program including 6,600 workplace hours and 600 in-school hours of training. After completion of training, a passing grade on the interprovincial exam will result in the B.C. Certificate of Apprenticeship, the B.C. Certificate of Qualification, and the Interprovincial Standard Endorsement, also known as Red Seal.
BCIT offers all four years of technical training for the machinist apprenticeship.
