I was wanting to look at becoming an electrician. I have no idea where to go or what to do to start this off. I know that it is a good trade to get into, and that there will always be work.
If somebody would be able to give me as much information on the steps that I should take, I would really appreciate it.
Good afternoon Ashton!
Your best course of action would be to get in touch with an established electrician or electrical contractor. In the trades, you need to apprentice to a journeyman in order to become a journeyman yourself.
You can find lots of electrical contractors in the lower mainland either online or in the phone book.
Hope this helps and best of luck to you!
Kelly is pretty accurate.
The process differs from region to region, so somebody from BC will have to answer specific questions, but essentially you will need to complete some schooling and on-the-job-training (approximately 9000 hours) to be able to challenge the journeyman examination.
There are also different levels / qualifications that you can challenge so when doing your research you need to be aware of that. You can get into construction, maintenance, rural, industrial, high voltage, etc.
Contact your local apprenticeship office and get some pamphlets or links and do the research. Then start knocking on doors and see who is looking for a helper. Once you have proven yourself, then hopefully they will offer you an apprenticeship and then you are on your way.
