Harmonization is an ITA initiative to substantively align the curriculum taught in each apprenticeship level for consistency across Canada in 30 Red Seal trade apprenticeship programs by 2020. The ITA is committed to minimizing challenges to apprentices to complete their training and are supporting training providers through the Harmonization Initiative. The ITA has considered the input of industry partners as well as training providers across the province to develop transition plans to ensure that there are options for all current apprentices to complete their apprenticeship with minimal disruption. Transition plans for each trade vary and may involve Gap Training (which refers to missing or resequencing content).
For further details on transition plans, gap training or questions related to harmonization, please visit the ITA website www.itabc.ca
