As of 2015, courses that are part of electrical technician programs in Ontario are Electronics 1, AC Fundamentals, Elec Installation Methods 3 (INSL 3400), Electrical Prints and Codes, and Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics. Conestoga, Durham College, Sheridan and Fleming College are among the Ontario schools that provide electrical technician courses.
Conestoga's Electronics 1 covers truth tables for logic gates, operation of diodes, numbering systems, semiconductor materials and parallel configurations. The course also offers practical experience to students in using electric tools. The school's AC Fundamentals focuses on alternating current theory. Specific topics in the course are voltage, power relationships, sine wave progressions to currents, three-phase induction machines and inductance.
The Elec Installation Methods 3 course at Durham College offers practical experience to students in working with direct current motors and single-phase or three-phase squirrel cage motors, including proper installation and troubleshooting.
Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics from Fleming College covers the instrumentation, measurement, and other factors of hydraulics and fluid mechanics. The course requires prerequisite courses in math and technology. The school's Electrical Prints and Codes course grounds the student in the Ontario Electrical Safety Code and the first part of the Canadian Electrical Code. Topics include above-ground and underground installations, wiring methods, industrial installation, and grounding and bonding.
