I'm from Canada and interested in becoming an electrician, I just had a question if someone could help me out , I have enough money to take either course, the second one is an apprenticeship training one I think..I'm thinking the apprenticeship one would be the best idea since Id have my red seal after finishing it and it's only an extra year..which one should I go for?

We have some "for profit" schools here in the States that will give you a worthless certificate in exchange for a $30k student loan.
I would avoid them. The only way to make a living in this trade is field experience.

If you want to be an electrician in Canada you will need to go through an apprenticeship. Find your provincial apprenticeship board and go to their website. It will explain the rest. Previous training might get you in the door with a company (you need to be indentured to become an apprentice), but IMO most like to train their own.

Good luck!
