A Career as an Electrician

Become an Electrician in BC

BC’s construction industry is just coming out of a downturn caused by the global market meltdown but the underlying need for qualified trades-people is still of great concern. The skills shortage caused by the retirement of the baby-boomer generation coupled with market demands are looming factors in the construction industry. As such, electrical contractors are once again seeking men and women who are prepared to learn an electrical trade.

The best way to start a career and become a skilled electrician is through workplace-based training under the direction of experienced workers. This kind of hands-on training is called apprenticeship, and many people say becoming an apprentice was their best career decision. If you think a career as an electrician is for you, apply for an apprenticeship today. The future is waiting!
