Electrician Apprenticeships

Electricians install, maintain, repair, test and commission electrical equipment and systems for industrial, commercial and domestic purposes.

Electrical trade qualifications offer many career opportunities. Depending on your chosen certificate and practical specialisation you could find yourself working in factories which make and/or repair electrical equipment, devices and machinery; repairing and maintaining electronic devices like televisions and radios; or even running your own small business as an Electrical Contractor.

This trade typically requires a four-year apprenticeship. MIGAS will facilitate your practical work placement with one of our quality host employers. In addition to on-the-job training, we will assist you with enrolment through a Registered Training Organisation to complete your certification. With MIGAS you will be fully supported throughout the duration of your placement by a Field Officer and by the wider MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees community.
