Construction Electricians work in a wide variety of buildings and facilities on everything from lighting and climate control systems, to communication equipment and thousands of other specific tools and devices.

*CE is currently undergoing Harmonization* 
The Canadian Council of Directors of Apprenticeship is currently undertaking the Harmonization Initiative in 30 Red Seal Trades by 2020. British Columbia is an active participant in this initiative. The goal of Harmonization is to substantively align apprenticeship systems across Canada by making the apprenticeship training requirements more consistent in the Red Seal trades. For more information on the Harmonization of the Construction Electrician program please see as well as the below implementation timeline. If you have any questions regarding Harmonization or your training schedule please contact our office.
