Working in the electrical career field requires a combination of technical knowledge, problem solving skills, and physical dexterity. The Lambton College Electrical Techniques program prepares students for this field and prepares students to begin their journey into apprenticeship.

Working both in the classroom and in various lab and shop settings, students gain practical, hands-on experience along with strong theoretical training in electrical fundamentals. The basics of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are taught and electrical safety is also covered through theory and hands-on labs.
