Still, there may be stubborn homeowners who will insist on DIY electrical work, citing the abundance of step-by-step guides and instructional videos on the Web as the reason for engaging in home fixes themselves. Indeed, what could possibly go wrong? Then again, why is a professional electrician in Durham more reliable in this kind of task?To become an electrician in the Durham Region, or the entire province of Ontario for that matter, one has to complete a five-year electrical apprenticeship. Under this program, aspiring electricians learn the necessary skills to do electrical work for residential projects, as well as safety, electrical theory, and electrical regulations—things that are likely not included in DIY sites. In Ontario, electricians can even earn the title of Master Electrician if their qualifications meet the Electrical Safety Authority’s standards.
