Once you’re registered in either the Nova Scotia Boat Builder Apprenticeship Program (BBAP) or the Nova Scotia Marine Service Technician Apprenticeship Program (MSTAP), you can purchase your apprenticeship workbooks online. Before you register though, first contact the NSBA’s Training Coordinator, Chip Dickison to check your eligibility for either program and to see which best matches your goals and interests.

Once you’re registered, Chip will help plan your chosen apprenticeship program and will assign workbooks that fit your chosen pathway.

Assigned workbooks can be uploaded to each individual apprentices’ profile which can be accessed by using a login username and password that will be issued to you only. Each online workbook costs $15 (includes GST).
