Who We Are
What We Do
The Flexibility and Innovation in Apprenticeship Technical Training (FIATT) project funded ten pilots. Each pilot experimented with alternate delivery technical training. The majority of these involved a combination of in-person instruction and online courses. Other pilots experimented with upfront training, mobile labs and/or simulator training. The FIATT pilots shared goals linked to common apprenticeship challenges, emphasizing the applicability and importance of the initiative to: (1) help apprentices progress and complete their training; (2) reduce wait-lists, time away from the workplace and the number of weeks on Employment Insurance (EI); (3) create access to hands-on training, especially for rural and Northern apprentices, through simulators and mobile training units; (4) engage apprentice learners, instructors, employers and/or underrepresented groups in online training; and (5) support apprentice learning and skills development.
