The Electrical Joint Training Committee (EJTC) offers our ELTT (Entry-Level Trades Training Program) six times per year, with a maximum 16 trainees per course. Our campus is located in Port Coquitlam, in Metro Vancouver.
Tuition includes course materials and safety equipment. Check our program page for upcoming course dates and fees.
After 15 weeks of classroom and workshop training, participants progress to 10 weeks of paid work experience at union rates with an electrical contractor signatory with IBEW Local 213. You work at a union worksite where certified electricians and apprentices are represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 213.
Upon course completion, you will receive a certificate and credit for achieving Level 1 standing for the Construction Electrician apprenticeship program in B.C.
The EJTC is an industry partner. Our role is to prepare entry-level trainees, and then apprentices, for long-term employment as electricians. Our training gets you ready for one of the top 10 in-demand trades in the province. With benefits, the current starting apprentice wage with EJTC employers is $21/hour.
The EJTC is designated as a training provider by the Industry Training Authority (ITA), and is also an accredited training institution under the Private Training Institution Branch (PTIB) of the B.C. Ministry of Advanced Education.
