Your Career

According to Service Canada, construction is a growth industry in Canada, currently employing more than 1.2 million men and women. Over the next few years, economic growth is expected to boost employment in most construction sectors, and as the construction industry – both residential and commercial – continues to grow, qualified electricians will increasingly be in demand, giving you a wide range of opportunities to choose from.

Work Placement

As an apprentice, you’ll either attend day-release schooling (one day per week from August to May for all three levels) or block-release (eight-week basic level, 10-week intermediate level, and 10-week advanced level). Apprentices serve a 9,000-hour apprenticeship with 840 hours allocated to in-school training.

Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition

Apprentices completing the required in-school training are issued Certificates of Apprenticeship from Humber College. Upon successful completion of in-school and on-the-job training, apprentices write the Ontario Certificate of Qualification trade exam.
