    Only half of apprentices complete program, says new study - Machinery and Equipment Magazine, Canada
    The study traced the path of a group of about 14,000 apprentices who registered in 1992 — 8,300 in Ontario, 4,800 in Alberta and 900 in New Brunswick. The total represented about half of all individuals who registered as an apprentice in 1992.

    Although the report does not analyze reasons for non-completion, further research may be able to measure the effect of employment opportunities, costs of the apprenticeship training, a lack of journeymen available for training apprentices, family reasons and union jurisdictional roles.

    Just over 900 people started new apprenticeship training in 1992 in New Brunswick. The most common trades were carpenter, construction electrician, automotive service technician, cook and plumber/gasfitter.

    After the 11-year period, 452 individuals, or slightly over one-half of the total, had completed a trade. Six out of 10 completers received their certificate within the expected duration of the apprenticeship.
