a trusted and accredited Electrician in Alberta.

First…WHAT IS A P.E.C.?

A Professional Electrical Contractor (P.E.C.) is a Certified (CME) or Registered (RME) Master Electrician in the Province of Alberta taking out electrical permits on behalf of a person/firm engaged in electrical contracting and who has successfully completed the course work and examinations required by the professional education program and maintains this through annual professional development and industry related training.

Why become a P.E.C.?

The sole purpose of the program is to provide the technically trained master electrician with an opportunity to gain a custom-designed education to make him/her a better informed electrical contractor and, therefore, a more esteemed member of the electrical industry and of the public at large. The Professional Electrical contractor may, because of this program, find a much readier acceptance of his-her services and a much wider share of the market both at home and abroad.

The title Professional Electrical Contractor stands for professionalism not only in the minds of the members of the Association, but more importantly, in the minds of customers and the general public.


All Alberta Master Electricians who take out permits for person/firms are eligible to apply for this program whether they are members of the ECAA or not. Application to the Registration Committee together with the registration fee is required.
