To work as an electrician in BC, you will need a BC trades qualification in electrical. Your english trades papers will allow you to challenge the exam here, I recommend that you take a code course as the terminology and wire sizes are different. Courses are available through BCIT., University College of the Fraser Valley, Surrey school district.
