The Apprenticeship Electrician program is designed to train apprentices to install, alter, repair, and maintain electrical systems designed to provide heat, light, power, control, signal or fire alarms for all types of buildings, structures and premises. Due to the nature of the work of the electrician, it is imperative that safety be taught on a continuous basis throughout this program.
This program outline is based on the NWTIAlberta Electrician Apprenticeship Course Outline (2007) issued by the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT).
The goal of apprenticeship training is to develop competent journeypersons through a combination of on-the-job and technical training.
The Apprenticeship Electrician program at Aurora College provides three of the four levels of technical training.
