Becoming a Level 2 Electrical Apprentice is one of the first steps required to become an Electrician in British Columbia. This program will let you finish Level 2 in only 10 weeks!

An Electrician is designated as a Construction Electrician under the Inter-Provincial Red Seal program. This SkilledTradesBC Approved modular program provides opportunities for Electrical Apprentices to gain employable lifetime skills, and provides employers with a highly trained and experienced workforce, while strengthening British Columbia’s economy.

Electricians work in a wide variety of buildings and facilities. Since electricity is used for a variety of purposes including climate control, security, and communications, Electricians need to be proficient in many applications of electricity. There are three main settings in which Electricians typically work; Construction, Industrial and Institutional.

Electricians have many different responsibilities and tasks that they must carry out in their daily work. They assemble, install, alter, test, and maintain electrical systems designed to provide heat, light, power, control, signal, and fire alarms for all types of buildings and premises.

They ensure that all electrical connections are safe and meet the Canadian Electrical Code requirements. This program gives the student the necessary skills to be competitive in all environments.

The Level 2 Electrical Apprentice program is the second-year theoretical and hands-on training component of the four-year program. Upon successful completion of the requirements (minimum 70%), students will receive their Level 2 Certificate.

Included in the Level 2 program, the student will learn single-phase AC theory, advanced motor control, advanced electronics and the Canadian Electrical Code.

The designated SkilledTradesBC funding is only applicable for registered active sponsored apprentices.
