The power that runs our cities, towns, and the economy relies on skilled professionals. Professionals that know how to get the job done, aren’t afraid to get dirty and have the specialized skills needed to solve complex problems. If this type of career excites you, Fanshawe’s Electrician – Construction/Maintenance (Block Release) [Apprenticeship] program will give your career dreams the spark they need.

As a career, construction and maintenance electricians lay out, connect, repair and maintain electrical systems and equipment. You’ll work with cutting-edge technology, learning the ins and outs of electrical theory along with specialized technical skills.
