The Electrician Apprenticeship requires about four to five years or 9,000 hours including 840 hours of post-secondary in-school training. Lambton College offers the in-school portion of the curriculum set out by the Ontario College of Trades.
One must pass an exam to receive a Certificate of Qualification with journeyperson status, which includes an Inter-Provincial Trade Certification (Red Seal). Prior education and experience may shorten the time to complete all competencies.
This is an apprenticeship program.
You cannot apply to this program through ontariocolleges.ca.
Applicants need a sponsor/employer and must register through the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD).
Applicants that are registered as an apprentice in a trade should receive a letter from the Ministry of Advance Education and Skills Development (MAESD) inviting them to apply for schooling. All applications from that point will need their payment processed by the Registrar’s Office at Lambton College.
If you are a registered apprentice and have not received a letter regarding apprenticeship schooling then contact your local MAESD office.
This Employment Ontario service is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
Apprentices may be employed in manufacturing plants, light and heavy industry, marinas, mills, factories and home construction.
