Hello, my name is Michael, I from Russia.
I want to receive the certificate 309A or 442A to work in Canada as the electrician. In Russia I have finished college (4 years) on a speciality "network and system Power plants" specialization "Operation of electroinstallations" (5784 hours) and in the same place there has passed retraining on a speciality "Installation, adjustment and operation of an electric equipment of the industrial enterprises and civil buildings" (420 hours). I worked as the electrician 2,5 years. What I need to make to receive the certificate?

I think each province may have their procedure for certifying your qualifications /credentials
