Question Confused ..

Hi,
My husband is and electronic engineer and working as maintenance / supervisory electrician at a company. My question is when applying as electrician for immigration completion of a four- to five-year apprenticeship program is usually required, can an engineering degree be a better substitute and can my husband apply under this occupation as he is having much higher degree than required.

Thanx in advance.

There's an old saying here:
"Never let an engineer wire your house."

If he's an electronic engineer, then his NOC code is presumbly 2133? So he can't apply as a Skilled Worker anyway unless he has a job offer approved by HRSDC?

I don't think he'd qualify as an electrician from what you've said, if he hasn't even done an apprenticeship and only has an engineering degree.

When you say "apply under this occupation" I assume you mean as a Federal Skilled Worker?

If so, then whether or not your husband qualifies is purely based on whether he is responsible for most or all of the main duties under the relevant NOC classification. Whether or not he meets the education requirement is not strictly relevant (I guess here the Canadian authorities accept that every country will have different education requirements, and so focus solely on what the job actually entails).

If your husband's job satisfies the main duties under Electrician, then he can apply under this code, regardless of his job title. Only he knows if that is the case, though to be honest it doesn't sound likely.
