This campus only provides Trades programs.

As of March 2015 we will be expanding our Trades campus and moving to a larger facility located at 3216 Beta Ave, Burnaby. The next Electrical Foundations start dates will be March 30 and August 10.

In our Trades programs, you will receive ITA-BC Approved training to become a certified Construction Electrician Apprentice.

The Electrical Foundations Program includes Level 1, which is the first year theoretical and hands-on training component of the four-year apprenticeship program. Upon successful completion of the diploma requirements, students will receive certification and a total of 350 hours towards their apprenticeship.

We also offer Construction Electrician Levels 1-4. In all levels, theoretical content is combined with practical hands-on lab experience using industry standard equipment. Each 8 week accelerated program for Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 can be completed within 6 months.

Parking stalls are located on the East and South facing areas of the school and are labeled “Sprott Shaw College Student Parking”. Metered parking is also available on Beta Street and surrounding area for $4.00/day, as well as a pay parking lot located adjacent to our building.

Our new location is easily accessible by transit. By bus students can take the #130 from Patterson Skytrain station, or the #25 or #130 from Brentwood Town Centre Skytrain station.

For those wanting to enroll in other programs our East Vancouver campus is an easy commute, near major streets, Skytrain and buses.

Consider getting the training you want to start your career while enjoying all that the city has to offer you. Contact one of our career advisors to find out if Sprott Shaw is right for you.
