Most if not all provinces, required you to be a licensed electrician or indentured apprentice.Hi I am from South Africa, I just wanted to know if I had to migrate to Canada and work as an electrician, would there be a difference in the field of working and is there like a test you have to do. We use 50hz here, I know the frequency could be different and the way of choosing cable size for voltage drops will be at a different standard but is there anything else that different.
Anyone with information will greatly be appreciated.
There is a national test ( Red Seal) which once passed, gets your license.
CEC 2012 is about 700 pages of codes, tables, and another 300 pages of details and explanations.
Frequency, voltage, product, techniques are different from South Africa.
