Get your Electrician Red Seal

Electrician is a nationally designated trade under the Interprovincial Red Seal program. Earning your Electrician Red Seal Endorsement marks you as a skilled worker, opening job opportunities for you across Canada.

The Electrician Apprenticeship program consists of four levels of training with ten weeks of in-school training in each of the four levels. Classes are scheduled in the day time and include both theory and practice. The program prepares you to write the Interprovincial Examination leading to final certification.

If you are not currently working as an electrician, you may consider enrolling first in UFV's Electrical Foundation program to gain the entry-level skills needed to secure employment. As a graduate of the program, you get advanced apprenticeship placement when you find an employer to sponsor you.
