3 Pillars of EJTC
Training for Industry
The EJTC Board brings together union leadership and electrical contractors. Because of our links to industry, we understand industry needs. Entry level and apprentice trainees work directly with BC’s leading electrical contractors. EJTC is bringing emerging technologies to the BC market.
Focus on the Student
The EJTC offers small class sizes with plenty of hands-on practice. All our instructors are Red Seal Certified electricians and work closely with students to address individual interests. At the apprentice level, staff members support trainees in scheduling school and work terms.
Respect and Inclusion
The EJTC and its industry sponsors are recognized as national leaders in promoting the status of women in the electrical trades. IBEW 213, our union affiliate, is the home of the BC Centre for Women in the Trades. We are committed to building a respectful workplace where everyone can succeed.
Electrical Foundation – ELTT Program (Entry Level Trades Training)
The ELTT course combines electrical theory and practical electrician training to prepare you for an apprenticeship in the electrical construction industry. It is the first step in an electrician’s training. Participants who successfully complete the course receive a certificate and credit for Level 1 technical training with the Industry Training Authority (ITA) related to the Construction Electrician (Electrical) apprenticeship program.Learn More
BC’s construction industry is booming due to a strong economy. This market demand coupled with a Canada-wide skills shortage caused by the retirement of the baby-boomer generation are looming factors in the construction industry. As such, electrical contractors are actively seeking men and women who are interested in the trades.Learn More

Yes, overall excellent course. Very impressed. Good combination of practical/theory.
I think that this course is far superior to any other electrical course in the province.
The practical experience is invaluable! I came into the course with little mechanical ability or knowledge and will leave a confident individual
Course was extremely interesting and offered a lot to learn. Perfect first step.
I consider myself very fortunate to have come to EJTC that has a huge support team and incredible teachers. I hope one day I will be able to help other women like me to achieve their goals just as you have helped me.
