Benefits of the ELTT Program
The EJTC’s Entry Level Trades Training Program prepares you for an apprenticeship in the electrical trades. The course combines 15 weeks of classroom and workshop training with 10 weeks of paid electrical experience.
The EJTC is the training and apprenticeship arm of the unionized electrical sector in B.C.’s Lower Mainland and Okanagan. Governed by a joint board representing the IBEW Local 213, the ECA of BC and the BC Shipbuilding sector.
Our instructors are trained to help students build on their strengths. We provide special help with learning issues.
You will be working with our IBEW local 213 experienced electricians at one of our signatory contractors job sites. Safety is a top priority for all.
The IBEW 213 apprenticeship includes regular pay increases, pension, industry-leading health benefits, financial support during technical training, and job security.
We take pride in our high success rate. We see the ELTT program as just the first step in your lifetime of learning within the electrical trades.
Note: fees are subject to change. Participants are expected to provide their own personal safety footwear and transportation to and from training and worksites. Students will be required to supply their own tools for the 10 weeks of work experience (approximate cost $500.00). These fees and costs are offset by the income that trainees earn during their included 10 weeks of work experience.
