Electrician

Why become an Electrician?

Energy supply in general and electricity in particular is a cornerstone of any economy. You come across electric devices from waking up in the morning to falling asleep at night. But dealing with electricity is somehow a dangerous business. As an electrician you make sure that people are equipped with the latest technology and that installations are carried out safely and economically.

An Electrician generally works in the field of mechanical and electrical (M & E) systems engineering and energy which includes the installation, maintenance or repair of electrical equipment and a variety of electrical circuits.

An Electrician

  • knows how to work with low voltage electrical installations,
  • understands the entire work process and the standards required,
  • works carefully and responsibly as a recognized electrician and
  • he advises customers on the benefits and costs of electrical installations.

The corresponding vocational training for Electricians at CVT is based on training and learning at the vocational school, the training company and the practical training center (PTC).

Testimonial

Mr. Nyi Pu

Firstly, I need to say that it has been a great pleasure to attend CVT Myanmar. Prior to joining CVT, working in real-life, I encountered numerous technical challenges. As a person learning in the electrical field, there are many difficulties in the life of an electrician. The reason for attending CVT was because of the skills/qualifications CVT offers in the electrical field. And then I wanted to establish my own business after I had acquired the necessary skills at CVT. Also, during my apprenticeship at CVT Myanmar, I became familiar with the dual educational system focusing on theory and practical application at the same time. Therefore, I became more confident regarding my career path and also my communication skills improved because of the teachers and the classmates at CVT. Now I was not only able to set up my own electrical company named “Omega Electric” with my classmates, but also to create an electrical design. Finally, again I would like to express my sincere thanks to CVT Myanmar and the teachers for their help and support enabling me to set up my own business.

Mr. Khin Hlaing Win

My name is Khin Hlaing Win and I am currently attending the second year of the Electrical training course. I am interested in the electrical field of study. That is because as technology keeps evolving nowadays, so does the complexity and quality of electrical appliances. By attending CVT’s course, I am learning more and more theories about electricity and gradually gaining more experience with the field. Before I started attending at CVT, my hometown, Min Hla, Bago Division, did not have access to electricity yet, hence intensifying my interest for this subject. Thanks to CVT, I have gained many knowledge as well as learned how to install electricity to an entire house in both practical and theoretical ways. I am now continuing my studies at CVT. I would like to say that receiving electrical vocational training from CVT is a guaranteed way of earning a stable status in life.
