The Electrician Pre-Apprenticeship Program at Humber College is a tuition-free program funded by the Government of Canada that is designed as a transition step to finding an apprenticeship.

Participants will receive Level 1 Electrician – Construction and Maintenance as well as exposure to Domestic and Rural applications. Remedial math support is built into the program and will take place in conjunction with the training delivery to reinforce concepts.

The program is delivered over 10 weeks, followed by a work placement of 8 to 12 weeks.

What You’ll Learn

  • Orientation & Safety Training (1 week)
  • Basic Level Electrician Training – Construction & Maintenance, Workplace Communications & Remedial Math support (10 weeks full-time)
  • Work Placements (8-12 weeks: dependent on employer, as well as student participation and input throughout program)

Over the next few years, economic growth is expected to boost employment in most construction sectors, and as the construction industry – both residential and commercial – continues to grow, qualified electricians will increasingly be in demand, giving you a wide range of opportunities to choose from. Additional factors enhancing the job prospects and the need for more electricians is the increasing concern for energy conservation that has led to the installation of more energy saving options, as wells as the upgrading and retrofitting of aging buildings.

This Pre-Apprenticeship Electrician program will help to address the skill shortages in the industry in the GTA and particularly help youth prepare for the opportunities in the sector with the upcoming projects.

Admission Requirements

  • Minimum Requirement: Grade 10 equivalency demonstrated via High School transcripts.
  • Must be eligible to work in Canada and obtain an Ontario apprenticeship.
  • Write an assessment test facilitated by Humber College.
  • Attend an interview (by invite only, based on assessment results).

I arrived in Canada recently and my main aim was to enter my industry of choice. This program was great to understand Canadian environment. It was also great to go ahead with job search and the mock interview is the best practice. The program encourages us to give presentations and improve our communication skills. I really recommend the program to my colleagues and any newcomers.
