Electrical Apprenticeships

Earn While You Learn

An electrical apprenticeship is 9000 hours of on-the-job training which breaks down into five terms of 1800 hours each. The pay scale is as follows:

First term (0 – 1800 hours) 40% of journeyperson rate
Second term (1801 – 3600 hours) 50% of journeyperson rate
Third term (3601 – 5400 hours) 60% of journeyperson rate
Fourth term (5401 – 7200 hours) 70% of journeyperson rate
Fifth term (7201 – 9000 hours) 80% of journeyperson rate

There are also three terms of trade school which must be completed during the course of an electrical apprenticeship – the first term is for eight weeks, the second and third terms are for ten weeks. The hours spent in trade school count as hours towards the apprenticeship.

When 9000 hours of work and three terms of school have been completed, an apprentice must pass a final exam with a mark of at least 70% to obtain a Certificate of Qualification and become a licensed 309A electrician.
