Find the perfect BC contractors for the job!
It doesn’t matter if you have a small electricity problem or if you are looking to build a full house grid, you need a certified electrician. All electricians need to study their profession and be certified by the province in which they preform the work. Before hiring any contractor, you need to make sure that the person you hire for the job is certified for it, possesses the skills and knowledge and is insured for any case of damage.
When looking for BC electrical contractors you will find professionals in three different levels; apprentice, journeyman and the master. They are all in different levels as they all have a different level of experience.

Which electrical contractors are acceptable for the job?
If you are looking at a simple task, an apprentice will do just fine, as any of his work should be inspected by a BC Journeyman or master electrician. You can also rest assure because any work being done will need to have an electrical inspection preformed before they can call the job complete. So, as long as you have a permit for the job, you shouldn’t have a problem obtaining a person qualified for the job. The advantage of having such a person for the job is of course the price, as it will normally be lower than the other professionals.
When going into a complicated and long term project it might be wiser to have someone more qualified, with a larger amount of training and experience. However that would reflect on their price as well. For these cases you might be looking to find a BC journeyman electrician, that is still skilled and qualified but takes a little lower fee than his Master friend.
