Becoming a licensed 309A (Construction and Maintenance) Electrician in Canada
Working as a licensed 309A Electrician in Canada encompasses installation and repair of electrical systems and parts in both commercial and residential buildings (new, remodel, etc), maintenance and testing of components and systems, safety compliance of electrical systems and reading specifications and blueprints for wiring layout. If you carry a valid electrician license from another country you may be eligible to challenge the Red Seal exam to become a licensed 309A Red Seal electrician in Canada.
In addition to meeting the requirements (valid electrician license in your country, 9000 hours of documented electrician experience completed, etc) for challenging the exam, you will want to prepare by understanding Canadian electrical code requirements. Studying the Construction and Maintenance Electrician Pre Exam Workbook along with the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) and the Illustrated Guide to Electrical will assist with your preparation.
Once you have completed all exercises in the workbook it is suggested that you move on to the Construction and Maintenance Electrician Practice Exam Questions to test your knowledge and ability to answer exam style questions as well as a simulated and timed exam. You will receive a wrong answer report upon completion of the simulated exam which will help to determine areas you may still need to study more. If you have scored 85% or less on the simulated exam it is highly suggested that you complete the Construction and Maintenance Electrician License Online Course and continue to study and practice quiz until you are confident you can pass the Red Seal Exam.
