Question about Joining the Canadian Army

their office hours are currently closed so i thought i'd ask here.

I want to work for the military as an electrician and I'm currently enrolled in a Electrical Pre-Apprenticeship program. My question is, would i need to have my Electrician Ticket or is it possible to learn and train there as a soldier & electrician?

thanks

No you do 2.5 months boot camp before any specialized training. If you enroll now, you should be able to get in for the April boot camp. They are currently out of funds and cannot send anymore to the January boot camp.

OK~~ I am in the military. I am a Meteorological Technician. They sent me to school for this. In your situation I believe if you have your ticket already you are elegable for a signing bonus.

Read this and it will explain the training process for electricians

Hope this helped PM me with any thing else you may want to know.
