Construction Electricians install, construct, alter, repair, maintain, commission, test, service, calibrate, and operate related electrical and electronic systems in any building or structure.
The program combines technical and work-based training. It generally takes four years to complete.
The technical training is made up of four levels. The first three levels are Common Core Electrician. After the third level students choose either Construction Electrician or Industrial Electrician for the fourth level training. Each level is 10 weeks (300 hours) for a total of 1200 technical training hours. This block of training is normally delivered through an ITA approved training institution. Sometimes it may also be met through approved training models (distance education, online, part-time) and/or a level challenge exam.
The work-based training totals 6000 hours. Based on a 30-hour work week this involves 200 weeks of training.
