Unfortunately it is not possible, at least in Ontario. You do not have to do an apprenticeship per se, but you still must complete the required hours within the trade environment.

Your schooling and experience will give you some credit toward the hours, but not enough to directly challenge the exam.

Contact your local apprenticeship office for the requirements for challenging the provincial exam.
