Earn while you Learn

Apprenticeship training programs for electricians vary across Canada, but generally involve four 12-month periods, including at least 8,000 hours of on-the-job training, four 8-week blocks of technical training and writing a final certificate exam.

Related work experience or completion of an electrical program at a college or technical institute can reduce the time required to complete your apprenticeship.

Certification is required in all provinces and territories. Certification tells employers and other workers that you are a skilled professional. It also helps you get jobs.

To be certified as an Electrician, you usually need to complete a four- to five-year apprenticeship program. Once you successfully complete the required on-the-job training, technical training and exams, you are awarded a journeyperson certificate.

As a certified Electrician you may write the Interprovincial Exam to qualify for the Interprovincial Standards’ Red Seal. With a Red Seal, you can work as an Electrician anywhere in Canada.
