On this page:
The College offers technical training required for employees to maintain systems used by the Canadian Coast Guard. Training focuses on the setup and maintenance of electronic systems on our ships and at shore-based sites. As part of career development for electronic systems technologists, we train them to:
- diagnose system failures
- repair equipment and systems
Training topics include:
- radiocommunications (analog and digital)
- navigations, such as:
- electronic charts
- integrated communications systems for:
- public address
- general alarm
- Installation fundamentals and techniques
- legislative training for the Ship Radio Inspection Program
Training is in English and French.
Regional managers determine when employees attend training, based on the job needs. Employees may also request training via their supervisor or manager.
This training is available to Canadian Coast Guard employees only, who are:
- electronic systems technologists (classification EL)
- electronics engineers (classification ENG)
If you’re interested in these careers, you must be a graduate of an accredited electronics program or an approved alternative. A foundation in electronic communications is preferable, but not mandatory. Other conditions of employment may apply.
You can apply on GC jobs. Successful applicants are hired in an apprenticeship program called the Marine Electronics Development Program.
