There is no shortage of opportunities for electricians in B.C. to gain new skills for the expanding electrical field.
A subsidiary of the Electrical Joint Training Committee (EJTC), E2 Inc. provides industry-leading skills training programs to Red Seal-qualified electricians.
Their professional development courses are aimed at meeting the needs of the province’s electrical industry sector, along with supporting their bigger picture goal of preparing those within the industry in adapting and contributing to a changing and greener world.
E2 Inc. is at the forefront of adapting internationally recognized programs, from the Electrical Vehicle Infrastructure Training Program (EVITP) to the National Advanced Lighting Control Training Program (NALCTP), for the Canadian industry.
Of interest to electricians working on large commercial or industrial projects with a curiosity for energy conservation and new technologies, the training program is designed to meet the increasing demand of the use of lighting controls in construction and building maintenance.
Through the full-time, 7-day intensive course, NALCTP trains and certifies Red Seal electricians in the proper programming, testing, installation, commissioning, and maintenance of advanced lighting control systems in commercial and industrial facilities.
With proper installation, advanced lighting controls improve energy efficiency in commercial and public buildings.

In response to another emerging market in the electrical trade in need of skilled labourers, E2 Inc.’s Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Training Program provides training and certification to construction electricians in installing PV equipment in Canada.
The need for the safe and effective installation of PV systems have accelerated the demand for skilled and recognized implementation personnel.
Some of E2 Inc.’s courses are offered online for those who prefer self-paced direction. In partnership with Danatec Educational Services Ltd., CSA Z462 Compliant Arc Flash & Shock Electrical Safety eLearning Training aims to reduce the risk for electrical workers who need to manage or may be exposed to the electrical hazards of arc flash and shock.
E2 Inc. is constantly adding programs to support innovative electrical training for safer, smarter, greener, and better performing workforces in Canada’s ever-changing economy.
