Electrical Techniques

You will gain a solid foundation in the theoretical and practical aspects of the electrical trade and become familiarized with the tools and materials used on the job. You will also learn how to effectively use the Ontario Electrical Safety Code.

Co-Op Option

The placement for this program is an optional co-op and is not required for you to graduate from your regular postsecondary program. You can choose to complete your postsecondary program, and you can graduate with a diploma without participating in the co-op option. However, if you choose, and qualify, to participate in this optional Co-op Diploma Apprenticeship program, you will become a registered apprentice sponsored by your co-op employer. Through your participation in this program, you will have the opportunity to participate in two paid co-op placements while earning a college diploma. The combination of your academic curriculum and the experience from the co-op placements enables you to receive completion from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities for the first, second, and third levels of in-school apprenticeship training.
