The 309A is the best ticket you can have at the moment. As far as I know you can no longer write the 309D or the 442 ticket, the 442 was only good for industrial electricians working in a plant setting and employed by a corporation. If you have a 442 you cannot work for a contractor and it is not recognized by any unions. The best thing you can do for yourself is get your CFAE (certified fire alarm electrician) and your masters

I agree
if you are looking to work in industry however PLC and training on CNC maintainance and repairs is a big + and you can get that through some regular colleges, some even offer it in night school
But for info on licence upgrading I would start with these guys http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/tcu/job...velopment.html
