The Apprenticeship Training Program is the preferred route to becoming an Industrial Electrician. Apprentices are employed and earning a wage while learning.
You are indentured to an employer who must agree to provide the training required in the Apprenticeship Training Standards. You must attend all classes of instruction, pass all examinations required, and fulfill the terms of the contract to receive your Ontario Certificate as a qualified Journeyperson Industrial Electrician.
You will receive an Apprenticeship Training Standard Book outlining the training objectives or areas of competency to be learned on the job. These competencies are necessary in order to function in the trade as a skilled worker or ‘Journeyperson’.
Level 1 (Basic) Apprenticeship Program Code 0739
Level 2 (Intermediate) Apprenticeship Program Code 0743
Level 3 (Advanced) Apprenticeship Program Code 0744
Before, during, and after the in-school portion, apprentices work to complete the on-the-job training objectives or areas of competency of their apprenticeship. After completing Advanced, as well as the job training competencies, apprentices are eligible to write the C. of Q. examination to qualify as a journeyperson. The entire process usually takes four to five years.
This program is funded in part by the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development.
