Vocational Training Online Applications

All Applications to Vocational Training Programs are to be done online now through SRAFP (Service Régional d'Admission en Formation Professionnelle). As of January 2018, vocational centres are no longer accepting in person applications. The SRAFP site is updated monthly as program start dates become available. Some programs, such as Plumbing & Heating, allow you to apply for a spot on a wait-list. Once you have completed the online application, someone from the centre in question will contact you. You will be given an appointment date to go in for an information session and/or interview. You will be asked to bring in your registration fee, original birth certificate, etc.  

Vocational Training Application Procedure

  1.  Vocational Training Center Open Houses

    • Spring dates to be determined shortly!

  2. Vocational Training Application Process

    • Make sure you have the required pre-requisites, i.e., meet the admission requirements, before applying to a program.

    • Apply online via SRAFP at https://www.srafp.com

    • Click here for SRAFP Online Application Process

    • You can apply to 2 different schools/programs. If your first choice program has a waitlist, apply to the waitlist and think about applying to a different program in the meantime.

      Example: The waitlist for the Electricity program is approx. 2 years. You can finish a program such as the Installation and Repair of Telecommunications Equipment during the wait. 7 modules overlap and there are many job opportunities after graduation.

    • Go to your center with your official documents to complete your file.

DOCUMENTS NEEDED:

  • Birth certificate

  • Latest transcript/report card
  • Medicare card
  • Application fee

DEADLINE to apply: Aim for March-April, 2019 but applications are ongoing!  

Once your file is complete (all documents have been submitted), you will be called and given a date for a mandatory information session and interview! I would be more than happy to help you prepare for an interview. Simply see me to schedule an appointment!

  1.  Student for a day!!! It is definitely worth your while to arrange a student-for-a-day activity with a center to determine whether or not a program is of interest to you. See me to set a SFAD activity up if you haven’t done so already!

  2. Reminder: I am available by email at vsylvain@lbpsb.qc.ca for application related questions. You may also fill in an appointment form to meet with me individually. You can also drop by during senior lunch or afterschool every day!  

 

VOCATIONAL OPEN HOUSES

This is a chance to meet and talk with current students, teachers, advisors, admissions and other non-teaching staff about program choices, extracurricular activities, etc. Everyone is welcome!

Vocational Programs

Vocational training programs continue to gain popularity in Quebec as an interesting avenue of post-secondary training permitting relatively quick (average of 6-22 months) access to good hands-on employment opportunities in a wide variety of fields. These increasingly competitive programs are offered across the province in such fields as carpentry, industrial design, professional cooking, automobile mechanics, plumbing and heating, and health care professions to name but a few. Most Vocational Training programs require that students successfully complete Sec. 4 (Grade 10) English, French, and Math (core classes). A few programs are available to students with Sec. 3 (Grade 9) core classes.

 

Student for a day

Vocational training centres invite you to see into the future and imagine what it would be like to follow a given training program. As a "Student for a Day"; you are given the opportunity to experience firsthand a typical day in a training program that interests you. You are able to talk with students enrolled in the program, share their background and experience, and help you in validating your career choice. It's an opportunity to feel like a new recruit; learning the ropes of your potential training program. Contact the training centre that interests you for info on how to register to be a student-for-a-day!
