Grade 12 HSAP Transition to Post-Secondary

June 2021 Transition Plan for HSAP to Post-Secondary Apprenticeship

HSAP Teacher's Role in Transition - May/June of 2021

1. Provide advice for apprentices planning to continue apprenticeship training.
2. Collect documents on behalf of the student and submit them to Apprenticeship Manitoba: a) completed high school transcript, b) up to date, signed Report of Hours Blue Book, and c) an AC number if the apprentice also successfully completed and met the requirements for an RRTVA accredited program.  

HSAP Student's Role in Transition from HSAP to Post-Secondary Apprenticeship

1. Continue to work in their apprentice-able trade to accumulate on-the-job work experience hours.
2. Register for their level 1 or 2 in-class technical training course.
3. When the Report-of-Hours Blue Book is returned via snail mail, students will continue to keep track of their hours and send in the Report of Hours Blue Book in 4-6 month intervals.

How to Register for Adult In-Class Technical Training

Registration for in-class technical training levels 1 or 2:

Apprenticeship Manitoba opened in-class technical training registrations for the spring of 2021 and the next academic year. Registrations were opened at the end of February 2021.  Please see the Apprenticeship Manitoba for registration dates. 

Students that have accumulated significant amounts of hours as an apprentice and want to attend technical training this next academic  can call the Apprenticeship Trades Coordinator for their trade to ask to be put on an interest list. Please contact the RRTVA office for contact information. 

Be mindful - apprentices that completed multiples of two HSAP credits should pay no tuition fees, whatsoever by claiming the HSAP Tuition Credit.

High School Apprentices High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP) Tuition Credit

Here is the table of fees for the cost of technical training:

Register by phone or in person if you have HSAP tuition credits. You cannot claim HSAP tuition credits if you register through Apprenticeship Manitoba's online portal. 

Important note about HSAP tuition credits – you must indicate that you have HSAP Credits in person or by phone (this does not work if you log in). For every two HSAP credits (220 hours) you did in high school, you are entitled to a free registration fee (this will save you $464 if you have an 8 week course). Please remember to do this each year if you earned multiple HSAP credits (8 HSAP credits pays for 4 levels of registration fees or $1856).  Caution: if you have accidentally paid for the registration, there is no chance of you getting it back

Call this number to register – 204-945-4016 (no call prompts), 1-877-978-7233, or show up in person at 100-111 Lombard Avenue, Winnipeg or 1005 St. Mary's Road Winnipeg. It is recommended to be both in line and phoning if you wish to have a specific time as the registration process is first-come-first-served.

Fill out the Apprenticeship Technical Training Registration Application.

Go to the current year  Technical Training Course Schedule to choose when you and your employer wish for you to attend training.

Some advice about registration:

1. Check with your employer as to when they would like to release you to your training course.

2. Be careful to choose the course at the school you wish to go to. Courses may appear at Red River College - RRC (Notre Dame campus in Winnipeg), Assiniboine Community College ACC (Brandon campus), or University College of the North (The Pas campus).
3. The courses are listed alphabetically but know that some level 1 and 2 courses are listed as Common Core. For example Agriculture Equipment Technician level one would be listed as Common Core Ag Tech/HDET/TTM Level 1.

Some advice about attending in-class technical training:

Technical Training Attendance Policy – please note that Apprenticeship Manitoba has a strict attendance policy for technical training. Familiarize yourself with their policy.

Updating Your Report of Hours Blue Book

After Apprenticeship Manitoba completes and confirms your application, they will send you a Report of Hours Blue Book that looks like this:

Purpose of the Report of Hours Blue Book

This document is used for apprentices to report the number of on-the-job work experience hours that student apprentices have accumulated during a period of work time.  Apprenticeship Manitoba uses the book to update an apprentice's progress in their trade. The number of on-the-job work experience hours can be different for each trade.  If you would like to find out how many hours are needed, look at your Report of Hours of Hours Blue Book or  click here and choose your trade. Notice that the number of hours required on the model above is 5400 hours.

Adult apprentices should update their Report of Hours Blue Book every 4-6 months. 

Apprentices must record

1) the current date,
2) total hours for the report period,
3) initial hours credited (this amount is updated each time the document is sent in),
4) accumulate hours (this amount is the sum of two previous numbers),
5) the company name, and
6) the signature of a company supervisor.

Please see the completed model below:

Model of Updated Report of Hours Blue Book

The Report of Hours Blue Book determines when an apprentice should register for in-class technical training.  Apprentices may take the next level of training when they have obtained at least half of the hours required for the annual hourly requirement.

For example, a student enrolled as a carpenter needs 1800 hours of training per year.  Once a carpenter apprentice has reached 900 hours, they can take the next level of training.  It is recommended that most of the on-the-job work experience hours  be completed so that the apprentice has had adequate practice.
