About the ELTT Program

Entry Level Trades Training Program

The EJTC Electrical Entry Level Trades Training (ELTT) provides a combination of electrical theory and practical electrician training to prepare individuals for apprenticeships within the electrical construction industry. Training topics include electrical theory and code, lockout procedures, fall arrest certification, safety awareness, WHMIS 2015 certification, Transportation of Dangerous Goods, confined space certification, Hilti shot certification and ladder safety training.

Our program provides our students who successfully complete the 15 weeks of technical training with 10 weeks PAID work experience. Placement will be with ECA of BC member companies associated with the Electrical Joint Training Committee (EJTC) and IBEW Local 213.

Upon successfully completing the course, you receive a certificate and credit for Level 1 technical training related to the Construction Electrician (Electrical) apprenticeship program.

Once the program has ended, the EJTC can then select full-time apprenticeship candidates from our program graduates, based upon work availability.
