As of yet I am not aware of a standard for this... (Like I mentioned before this law is too new, and mismanaged to have thought of such silly things. Like how it all works. )

If you're in a program, they should have devised some method for this.... You are in a program now right? You need to be at the very least enrolled in one to work. Legally that is (As far as certification is concerned), hours may not count otherwise.

But for the time being, you may want to break down your hours in a log book in the catagories exactly the same way they are laid out in the requirements, and record them on your own. Also, keep a record of pay vs. hours, pay stubs etc. A few shops I have worked for in the past have kept records in a simular manner for hours. (For refferance reasons)

I'm gonna look a little more into it, and see if I can find anything out.

Asked around, and not much luck on solid aswers, but it seems school hours will be kept by the scholl, and work hours I get varying answers. But best bet would be as said before. keep your own records, and back them up with paystubs. Wish I could help more....

As a 47 year old 3rd year apprentice with 4200 hours in the state of mass. In this state we have a web site that you can pull a sheet up and your employer fills it out when you leave his or her employment. All my journey man school hours at completion are in 75 block hours. We get a diploma with the hours on it. We need 600 hours of school before we can take the test along with 8000 HOURS OF DOCUMENTED WORK HOURS> Check in the phone book and Im sure their is a Division of Apprentice training. Call them and youll get allthe help you need. PS: Have them fill it out before you get them mad at you.

My ending was wrong. What I meant was have your employer fill out the sheet before you leave or before you get them mad at you.

You guys might find this link helpful. Although some of the fields have been filled out as a sample, it gives a good indication of what information should be included: http://www.cnc.bc.ca/apprenticetoolkit/pdf/recordbook.pdf
