Opportunities for Further Study

Students with a minimum 65% standing in program requirements and 90% or better attendance record will be eligible to write the Alberta Apprenticeship first year Electrician examination.

There are 3 more apprenticeship training periods required for you to become a journeyman electrician. All can be taken at Lakeland College. See the electrical apprentice pages.

Once you've been a journeyman for 3 years, you can become a Master Electrician. Lakeland offers a certification course to prepare you for the exam.

Or if you have a valid Alberta Journeyman Certificate, you are eligible to receive a Blue Seal business credential after completing 150 hours of study in an approved business program.

The Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board established the Achievement in Business Competencies Program, also known as the Blue Seal Program. The program both encourages and recognizes business studies by anyone who is already certified in an Alberta designated trade or occupation.
