Electrician Apprenticeship

Electrician Apprenticeship

Program Description

This program prepares students for entrance into the field of Electrician by providing them with the basic knowledge, skills and technical training that employers are seeking in new hires. Because electricity is used for a variety of purposes including climate control, security, and communications, electricians need to be proficient in many applications of electricity.

If a student currently works as an Electrician and has an employer who will provide on-the-job training, s/he is eligible to enroll in Apprenticeship training. An Apprenticeship is a three-party agreement between the Apprentice, the employer, and the Industry Training Authority.

Students will receive provincial apprenticeship curriculum pertinent to the apprenticeship level in which they are enrolled.  Upon successful completion of all four levels and appropriate time in the trade, the student may be eligible to write the Inter-provincial exam for either Construction or Industrial Electrician.
