Our program is modelled after the in-school portions of the Basic Electrician Apprenticeship. It includes practical, hands-on experience and in-class theoretical learning. You will gain theoretical knowledge in the areas of installation, troubleshooting, repair, and maintenance of complex electrical machinery. You will also apply electrical safety code and print reading knowledge to commercial and industrial installations. In addition, you will be introduced to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), power electronics, and instrumentation fundamentals.
The Co-op Diploma Apprenticeship program combines a college diploma program and apprenticeship training leading to a Certificate of Qualification. The program enables individuals to train as apprenticeship participants, completing all in-school learning outcomes (trade school). In addition, participants have the option to pursue a co-op with an employer. Individuals who want to register for the Co-op Diploma Apprenticeship program must meet all eligibility criteria for both the college diploma program as well as apprenticeship training.
