Program description - September 2022
This skills-based program offers a unique opportunity for you to prepare for all facets of the Powerline Technician occupation. Graduates of this program have experienced strong rates of co-op securement and graduate employment. Practical skills are developed during multiple hands-on, full-length work days in our dedicated, on-site training yard. Students benefit from daily use and training on our extensive fleet of industry-standard vehicles and work equipment. Students will learn the skills required for the construction, maintenance and repair of overhead and underground power-distribution systems through significant hands-on practical skills development and classroom learning. Students may have the opportunity to complete the initial level(s) of apprenticeship trade schooling and become provincially registered as a Powerline Technician Apprentice (434A). Also, students will have the opportunity to take additional industry-specific courses. Two optional co-op terms are incorporated into this unique program. Co-op work term experience may be counted towards the on-the-job apprenticeship hours. This program reflects industry's strong emphasis on safety. Requisite Occupational Health & Safety courses introduce students to regulatory knowledge and industry-safe work procedures and practices.Electrical Utilities from across the province support the program by providing donations, guest instruction, and co-op opportunities. Their extensive participation helps ensure our students develop skills to meet industry's latest innovations.For more information, please contact our Student Recruitment staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Applying to the co-op stream
- All applicants apply to the non co-op program. Students will be informed of the application deadline and process to apply for the Co-op Stream. Labour market conditions determine the number of co-op seats in optional co-op programs. Not every student who meets academic eligibility requirements will be admitted to the co-op stream.
- To be considered for admission to the co-op stream, students are required to achieve a minimum 70% session weighted average in Level 1, and no failed or dropped courses.
- International students will require work permits to utilize the co-op job board for job search and to accept employment. Students are currently experiencing longer than usual wait times for work permits. Please be advised that there will be no co-op program service fee refunds after the program withdrawal for refund date. Students that have not received their work permit and choose to remain in co-op after the program withdrawal for refund date do so at their own risk and will not be refunded. If you are concerned about receiving your work permit in time to achieve co-op employment, please discuss your situation with your co-op advisor as early as possible.
