Top Apprentice Bursary (no application required)  Alberta Apprenticeship & Industry Training Board selects a “Top Apprentice” each year from many apprenticeship programs, including the RV Service Technician Apprenticeship program at SAIT. The Top Apprentice award recognizes the apprentice that demonstrated very high achievement in their technical training upon graduating from the program.

The RVDA of Alberta proudly donates the $1000.00 bursary to the recipient chosen by the Alberta Apprenticeship & Industry Board.
