Northwestern Polytechnic is reintroducing the Master Electrician examination prep course to prepare learners to write the Alberta Master Electrician exam.
Why Become a Master Electrician?
Master Electricians are the only contractors in Alberta who can obtain electrical permits. All Master Electricians must have the appropriate qualifications and knowledge of codes and regulations related to electrical work. To become a Master Electrician, learners must:
- hold a certificate as a Journeyman Electrician
- have worked as a Journeyman Electrician for at least 3 of the last 5 years
- pass the two-part ME exam administered by the Safety Codes Council with an average grade of at least 75%. For more information on the exam, please visit the Safety Codes Council website
Duration and Delivery
This course is delivered in person at the Grande Prairie campus from October 11, 2023 to December 7, 2023 on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Learners are expected to spend a minimum of 2 hours per week on self-study and practice.
Students are required to bring the current edition of the Electrical Code Book (CEC) and will need to access the current Electrical Standata (available online). The 25th Edition of the Canadian Electrical Code (2021) Part 1 can be purchased as a PDF or a print copy through CSA Group.
This project was made possible through funding from Alberta Education.
