Register the apprenticeship with your Provincial Apprenticeship Authority
Apprenticeship begins by completing an Apprenticeship and Sponsor Registration form(s) and submitting it to the Provincial apprenticeship authority. This is a signed agreement between the employer and the apprentice that specifies the trade in which the apprentice will be trained and provides the information necessary for the Provincial apprenticeship authority to set up the apprenticeship.

There are two steps in this process of becoming a member for those who are not apprentices. You must first determine whether your trade is classified as compulsory or voluntary under OCTAA. For the RV Technician trade, there is a Certificate of Qualification (C of Q) exam available.
Before you fill out the Member Application Form, you must first determine if your trade is classified as a compulsory or voluntary trade. To help you find out the classification of your trade, a list of trades and their classifications is found here. RV Service technician trade is a voluntary trade in Ontario.
What does it mean to practice a voluntary trade?
- Every trade that is not identified as compulsory is, by default, voluntary. Certification is offered in some voluntary trades, but is not a requirement to practice in the trade.
- Membership in the College is not required to practise a voluntary trade.
Once you have determined whether your trade is compulsory, voluntary with a Certificate of Qualification (C of Q) exam, or voluntary with no C of Q exam, the next step is to determine which class you should apply to; based on the type of documents you have to support your application.
- In order to hold a valid C of Q in a voluntary trade, use the title “Journeyperson”, say that you are a “certified Journeyperson” or that you have your “Journeyperson ticket” in a voluntary trade, you must be a member of the College.
