Yukon Territorial Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) System

In the Yukon Territory, previous trade related work experience as credit towards completion of an apprenticeship program is based on the indenturing employer's recommendation. The Department will not give credit beyond a maximum of one half the trade’s hourly requirement.

Applicants must provide verification of previous work experience through letters (on company letterhead) from previous employers or on trade verification forms signed by previous employers.

Applicants, who have completed trade courses such as pre-employment and technology programs, must submit course completion certificates and transcripts. The course content is assessed to determine eligibility to write apprenticeship level examination(s). Applicants from acceptable programs who successfully pass the prescribed apprenticeship level examination(s) are given hourly time credit towards their apprenticeship program based on the registering employers' recommendations.
