Program Overview

Want to jump into the construction workforce? At just 18 weeks long, this course provides the basic knowledge and skills you need for an entry level electrician job.

Industry experienced instructors will help you learn how to install, test, replace and repair lighting fixtures, wiring and electrical equipment. You’ll get lots of hands-on practice using standard tools of the trade. You’ll also learn how to read and interpret construction drawings.

Electrician is a skilled trade. Having an applied certificate will get you noticed by employers and put you on the fast track to having a career as an electrician. The more education and experience you get, the higher you can climb on the wage-earning ladder. A fourth-year journeyperson electrician can earn double the hourly wage of a first-year electrician apprentice.

Applied certificate programs can give you a head-start on apprenticeship. To learn how to apply your academic credit toward Level 1 of the Construction Electrician apprenticeship program, contact the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC).
