ECA Ottawa

The delivery of cutting-edge educational programs, for both on-site and in-office staff and owners, is one of ECA Ottawa’s most important mandates. The electrical industry has been challenged by a great deal of change in a very short period of time.  Market and economic conditions, competitive challenges, and significant advances in technology have made the role of an electrician much more sophisticated. That is why ECA Ottawa will continue its focus on delivering the most innovative and up-to-date industry-specific training.

Management training such as Estimating, Project Management, and Supervisory Training  are all available. Also, the on-site staff has access to day-to-day operational development such as Working At Heights, First Aid, and CPR training. Look for much more variety and availability of courses in the upcoming months.

Please note that, due to the high cost of courses, if you sign up for a course and do not cancel with enough notice (minimum 48 hours) or you simply do not attend the class, your company will be invoiced for the full cost of the course.

Due to the COVID – 19 Pandemic, all in-class courses have been suspended. Fortunately, we have access to many exceptional online training programs. Please look at our list of Online Courses on this website.
