Electrician: Industrial Apprenticeship

Our Program

Humber teaches you technical theory and skills in the three levels of in-school training allocated toward your electrician apprenticeship. Industrial electricians are skilled workers who can perform a wide range of tasks including: lay out, assemble, install, repair, maintain, connect or test electrical fixtures, apparatus, control equipment and wiring for electrical systems; plan installations from blueprints, sketches and specifications and install all electronic devices; systematically diagnose faults in electrical and electronic systems and equipment, and repair or replace electrical and electronic components; measure, cut, thread, bend, assemble and install conduits and other electrical conductor enclosures; splice and terminate electrical conductors, and test electrical and electronic equipment for proper function.

Your Career

The industrial electrician powers, controls, and maintains Ontario's factories, plants, and industries. Knowledge of state-of-the-art technologies is paramount in keeping our province on the leading edge. Apply your technical know-how in an industrial or plant setting, assembling, testing, installing and maintaining electrical and electronic components and systems.

Work Placement

Apprentices in the Electrician: Industrial Apprenticeship program serve a 9,000-hour apprenticeship with 840 hours allocated to three levels of in-school training.

Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition

On completing in-school training, apprentices are issued a Certificate of Apprenticeship from Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning. When on-the-job training is finished as well, apprentices are eligible to write the Ontario Certificate of Qualification trade exam. Those attaining a minimum of 70 per cent are eligible to work in other provinces participating in the Red Seal Program.

Admission Requirements
  • Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent, or mature student status
  • Grade 12C or U English
  • Grade 12C Mathematics is recommended

The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program is now offered by some Ontario school boards. This program allows you to complete high school while working part-time as a registered apprentice. To see if you are eligible, contact your guidance counsellor or technical director for more information.
