      In my opinion pre apprentichip schooling is often a waste of time and money. Safety training would be much more valuable. First aid, CSTS, Elevated work platform, WHIMIS.. with these items in place this reduces the cost to hire a new to the trade person and puts him on the top of my list for interviews.
