Qualified electricians are well paid and highly sought after in BC. The Construction Electrician Foundations program combines training in classrooms, labs and shops where students learn the protocols and basic principles of electrical work, including installation and maintenance of electrical power, lighting, heating and alarms.
The electrical courses also cover the fundamentals of electrical work, including math and physics, hand and power tool use, electromagnetism, equipment testing, electrical code, and interpreting sketches and drawings. Safety is also a major component of this program and students examine Workers’ Compensation Board and Safe Work Practices.
After a practicum placement, graduates are qualified to enter the electrical field in an entry-level position.
