Lambton College's Electrical Techniques program prepares students for a career in the rewarding and extensive electrical field.

Working both in the classroom and in various lab and shop settings, students gain practical, hands-on experience along with strong theoretical training in electrical fundamentals.

This program teaches students how electricity works, how many electrical devices work, how to use various electrical tools, the wiring of residential, commercial and industrial circuits, interpreting Electrical codes, and how electronics and instrumentation devices are used in today’s high tech world.

Upon completion, students who gain an apprenticeship are eligible to be exempted from Level 1 (Basic) of the in-school portion of the Construction Maintenance Electrician Apprenticeship program.
