Electrical Foundation – ELTT Program (Entry Level Trades Training)


The ELTT course combines electrical theory and practical electrician training to prepare you for an apprenticeship in the electrical construction industry. It is the first step in an electrician’s training. Participants who successfully complete the course receive a certificate and credit for Level 1 technical training with the Industry Training Authority (ITA) related to the Construction Electrician (Electrical) apprenticeship program.

BC’s construction industry is booming due to a strong economy. This market demand coupled with a Canada-wide skills shortage caused by the retirement of the baby-boomer generation are looming factors in the construction industry. As such, electrical contractors are actively seeking men and women who are interested in the trades.
