Programs and Goals
The Co-operative education program integrates classroom theory with practical experience in the workplace. The program is based on a partnership between the school and the business or industry. Students experience the practical aspects of the job and the expectations of the employer while providing credits toward their graduation diploma.
Gatt Electric is very proud to be able to participate in the Co-operative Placement Program with our area high school students who show an interest in gaining knowledge and experience in the electrical field. Through the co-op program, students have the opportunity to learn the trade and develop their skills under the guidance of an experienced electrician as their mentor and placement supervisor.
In the past, the opportunity of a full time position has become available to co-op students who show potential during their work experience program with us.
Prior to being hired, one must be enrolled in or have completed the Apprenticeship program. Apprentices serve a 9, 000 hour apprenticeship with 840 hours allocated to in-school training. The theory courses prepare students to become journey person electricians by completing the required technical training. Upon successfully completing in-school and on-the-job training, students write the Ontario Certificate of Qualifications trade exam. Those attaining a minimum of 70 per cent are eligible to work in other provinces participating in the Red-seal program. Contact your local Apprenticeship Branch Office of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities for start dates.
