By Anthony Capkun
November 1, 2017 – Alberta’s Safety Codes Council announced Pauline Banack from Beaver County (near Edmonton) is its 10,000th Master Electrician. Congratulations!
Pauline has worked as an electrician for more than 8 years, and as a journeyman electrician for four, says SCC. Her work has been mainly on new construction, as well as maintenance and upgrades (primarily on commercial and oilfield projects).
“We have over 4800 active Master Electricians in the province, and we recognize the effort that goes into gaining this title. We’re happy to celebrate this milestone with Ms. Banack,” said Danielle Paradis, Administrator of Certification, SCC.
Master Electricians are part of the safety codes system responsible for ensuring the safety of Alberta’s buildings and other structures, explains the council. Following at least three years of work as a journeyman electrician, an ME applicant must write and pass a 7-hr exam to obtain certification. Over 10,000 Master Electricians have been certified in Alberta since 2011, SCC reports.
