BCIT offers all four years of technical training for the Machinist Apprenticeship. The apprentice training covers the required theory and provides hands-on experience in our well-equipped shop.
The machinist apprenticeship requires in-school training and time spent on the job. A Machinist apprentice must complete a four-year program consisting of 870 in-school hours of training and 6,330 workplace hours. 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 levels of technical training for the Machinist Apprenticeship.
