What is the Trade and Apprenticeship ExamBank?

The Trade and Apprenticeship ExamBank offers apprentices and tradespeople the opportunity to use practice questions that have been developed by qualified trades instructors to prepare for trade school, apprenticeship, and Interprovincial Exams. Set up your account now and begin studying right away, or try the demo exam to get a feel for how our site works. The collection of currently available trades is listed on the left.

The questions available here are based on the Individual Learning Modules (ILMs) developed by Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training, as well as National Occupational Analysis (NOA) standards. There is enough commonality in similar programs in other provinces that students all across Canada use this resource to help them prepare. ExamBank is an excellent learning tool for college students, high school students taking introductory trades programs, and individuals preparing to challenge apprenticeship, Interprovincial Standards "Red Seal", or qualification exams. It is also suitable for all individuals in the workforce who wish to refresh their knowledge.

By using this web site, you can write randomized practice exams covering specific topics, individual periods of study, or the entire database of questions for your trade. The computer can mark your practice exam as soon as you're done, so that you can immediately see where your strengths and weaknesses lie. Or, if you prefer, you can print the test and answers to study at a later date. As the service is entirely web-based, no software needs to be installed, and it works equally well on Windows, Macintosh, or any other computer system with an Internet connection. In addition, web delivery allows us to continually update and add content to our database of more than forty thousand questions.

To write an exam, or see the exams available, click on the trade to the left. If you do not have either a personal or a school account that you can use to access the service, you can set one up online. Our packages start as low as $19.95 for 35 credits.
