Instead of using the Secure Identity & Access Management System (SIAMS) to access MyTradesecrets, the Government of Alberta is replacing it with the MyAlberta Digital ID. A MyAlberta Digital ID gives users quick, secure access to a range of participating Government of Alberta online products and services with one account.
Other than the log in page, everything else in your MyTradesecrets account will remain the same.
Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer (IE) 11 and newer and Safari.
For best results we encourage you to use something current.
When you are completing the requested information to create a MyAlberta Digital ID account, you can use your preferred or current name. There is also a section where you can enter your legal names and any former names.
A confirmation code is provided to individuals who require access to specific services, like the Apprenticeship, Trade and Occupation Management System (ATOMS) through their licensee organization. Alberta Advanced Education sends the confirmation code to the individual. The confirmation code is used to ensure only this individual gains access to the specific service.
Please call the Work Force Development (WFD) Help Desk. They can be contacted Monday to Friday (except holidays) from 8:15 to 4:30 PM (Mountain Time).
Phone (780) 427-5318 or call toll free (within Alberta) dial 310-0000 followed by (780) 427-5318
When you enter your Alberta Student Number (ASN), confirmation will be made using your first name, last/family name, date of birth, and ASN. The confirmation process ensures you are in possession of enough information to entitle you to access the online services.
