Ralph Cerasuolo, Founder of Electrical College of Canada, was joined by the City of Vaughan's Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua to officially open the 7,800 square foot facility at its five-year Anniversary celebration at its new location at 90 Trowers Road in Woodbridge.
"We are thrilled with the success of our program. After five years of training electrical students we have definitely created a niche for our specific expertise in electrical trade education. The demand for electricians, and the success of our trade educational program, has allowed us the opportunity to expand and relocate," said Mr. Ralph Cerasuolo, Founder of the Electrical College of Canada."
The Electrical College offers its students' three fully equipped classrooms and full-scale condo, residential and commercial labs so that its students get advanced electrical classroom work and real life lab work.
"The recent budget focussed on increasing education funding for skilled trades and second career training in specific booming trades with high job demand like the electrical field. This is great news for the industry and fantastic news for our College," said Mr. Cerasuolo. "We are thrilled by the government's commitment to the industry, and that, coupled with the growth of industrial, residential and institutional projects, will definitely result in increasing demand for skilled workers for years to come."
"I am pleased to offer my sincere congratulations to the Electrical College of Canada for their commitment to skills development and education in the electrical trades," said Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua. "As one of the fastest growing municipalities in Canada, we are proud of the many advantages in the City of Vaughan, including our highly educated workforce. I want to thank the Electrical College of Canada for their commitment to educating students to achieve their full potential. Our city welcomes you!"
Cerasuolo believes that one of the reasons for the College's success is that its graduates leave the program with an equivalency of two years work experience and a chance at vast employment opportunities in the growing electrical field.

It offers full time and part-time classes during the days, evenings and weekends throughout the year to accommodate all of the Students' personal goals and lifestyles.
