Take the first steps toward an in-demand trade career with the Electrician diploma program at OBC

Electricity powers so much of our daily lives — from our lights to our laptops, our cell phones to our appliances. We depend on it everywhere we go, whether it’s at home, at the office, at the grocery store or the hospital, or even when we’re waiting at a stoplight. And when the lines go dark, whether from bad weather or bad timing or just everyday malfunctions, there is one person that everyone calls to get things back online: an electrician.
