Construction Electrician

As a certified apprentice electrician, you would fit, test and repair the electrical circuits and wiring found in homes and businesses. Your work might range from fitting a bathroom shower circuit in a customer’s home to laying equipment cabling in a major new office development.

Students would gain the skills and knowledge required to work with employers such as electrical contractors and building firms, manufacturing and engineering companies, kitchen, bathroom and shopfitting companies. Self-employment is another common option.

This program is recognized by the Apprenticeship and Certification Board as an Interprovincial Trade (Red Seal Endorsed) which allows the holder to work in other provinces /territories without having to re-certify.
