Log Hours with TradeSchool

The JATC will provide you with a login for TradeSchool so you can easily track your on-the-job training hours online.

With your unique TradeSchool account, you’ll be able to:


  • Log OTJ hours after each shift or week
  • View running totals of apprenticeship hours completed
  • Enter details on work performed and skills learned
  • Access from any device using mobile apps

Your hours on TradeSchool will sync with the JATC’s reporting system so we can monitor your OJT progress through the apprenticeship.

Be sure to regularly log all your training hours on your assigned TradeSchool account. It provides a simple way to record your time and keep up with program requirements.
