You will receive a phone call or an acceptance letter one month prior to the course. You are required to confirm or decline your participation two weeks prior to the course.

The Alberta Carpenters Training Centre has expanded their Scaffold Training from Edmonton; we are now offering all the courses in Fort McMurray and Calgary as well.

Members who are taking the Scaffold Apprenticeship should have the company(s) they work for fill out the book appropriately. The company should fill out:
- the date;
- how many hours;
- what type of scaffolding;
- they MUST sign, date; and
- stamp the book.

Members will not progress with out their book being filled out!
