Saskatchewan Provincial Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) System

In Saskatchewan, credit in the apprenticeship program can be awarded for both previous technical training and work experience. Apprentices from other provinces receive credit on a level for level basis. Work experience is creditable on an hourly basis. Graduates of pre-employment courses from out-of-province may receive time credit equivalent to actual time spent on the course. These individuals are eligible to write placement examinations to establish advanced standing in technical training. An entrance examination can be written where an individual does not meet the educational requirement.
