Skilled Trades Placement

Learning Skilled Trades at New Electric

“I knew I was interested in an electrical placement, and was interested in co op. The best thing about placement at New Electric was the constant change, the opportunity to do different types of work, and to learn new things. It was interesting to see various problems or issues and figure out how to problem solve and do the repair.

The placement confirmed that this was the trade I wanted, and I enjoyed the opportunity to work with my hands and learn skills in electrical.

I was able to get an initial experience, give New Electric a chance to see how I work, and they hired me on. From the co op I was able to start as an employee and will transition into an apprenticeship pathway in the fall.”
