3 Pillars of EJTC

Training for Industry

The EJTC Board brings together union leadership and electrical contractors. Because of our links to industry, we understand industry needs. Entry level and apprentice trainees work directly with BC’s leading electrical contractors. EJTC is bringing emerging technologies to the BC market.

Focus on the Student

The EJTC offers small class sizes with plenty of hands-on practice. All our instructors are Red Seal Certified electricians and work closely with students to address individual interests. At the apprentice level, staff members support trainees in scheduling school and work terms.

Respect and Inclusion

The EJTC and its industry sponsors are recognized as national leaders in promoting the status of women in the electrical trades. IBEW 213, our union affiliate, is the home of the BC Centre for Women in the Trades. We are committed to building a respectful workplace where everyone can succeed.
