 Why do I have to apply prior to my first day of school?

When Tuition Assistance was first offered by the Electrical Industry Education Trust Fund of Alberta, the Board of Trustees required members to apply prior to their first day of school to ensure proper budget and management of the Trust Fund to reimburse tuition.

What if I forgot to apply prior to my first day of school?

A letter must be written to the Education Board of Trustees explaining why you were late submitting your Tuition Application.

Other than the Electrical Tuition Assistance application, what other paperwork do I need to submit to receive my reimbursement?

A copy of an itemized receipt showing payment for school and your letter from the Apprenticeship Board showing successful completion. 

  • AIT has transferred to a paperless system and will no longer send your marks in the mail.  Your letter and marks are now available in your tradesecrets portal under "Applications".  If you have any questions, please contact EITCA.
