  4. You submit a Work Order when ready
  5. We identify qualified candidates who match your specifications
  6. You select the best candidate
  7. We verify job placement details
  8. We dispatch the Apprentice to your job
  9. We provide ongoing support.

1.     Register with us as a Host Employer

We meet with you to assess your needs and ensure that Group Training is an effective solution for your business. We will establish a Host Employer Agreement with you and set you up in our system so we are able to supply apprentices whenever you are ready to hire.

2.     Confirm safe work environment

Our Field Services Rep will discuss safety with you to ensure you offer a safe work environment for the apprentices entrusted to your care. It is important to identify a tradesperson who is qualified to supervise and train the apprentice in their trade, preferably a certified journeyperson.

3.     Determine level of apprentice needed

We work with you to identify the core work activities for the trade(s) requested. This understanding of your business needs will help us to match apprentices at the level most suitable to the types of work you do. This exercise may improve work process and reduce costs.

4.     Submit a Work Order

When you are ready to hire fill out a Work Order detailing the job requirements. We will work with you to ensure the Work Order clearly reflects your needs so we are able to match the best candidate for the job.

5.      Identify suitable candidates

We will identify candidates based on your specifications. All of our apprentices undergo a detailed screening process, including reference checks, skills identification, safety awareness and workplace communication. Our apprentices have all completed the Construction Safety Training System (CSTS) program.

6.     Select the best candidate

Once we have identified a candidate or candidates, you will have the option of conducting your own interview or we can make the selection for you.

7.     Final verification of job details

Before dispatching the apprentice we will contact you to confirm project details, including: start date, expected duration, work hours, job site location and contact. At this time we will also verify your candidate selection and their associated bill-out rate.

8.     Dispatch the apprentice to your job

Following confirmation of project details the apprentice will be dispatched to your jobsite.

9.     Monitoring and support

Our professional staff will provide ongoing support for both the Apprentice and the Host Employer from the first day on the job through to completion of each placement.
