electrician how-to

I'm looking for a short, thorough and top notch community college type course in the electrician profession. I live in Toronto, Ontario. My intension is not to DIY the old house I live in but to make good decisions and be able to look for weaknesses in any piece of real estate I come in contact with. Anybody have any reasonable answers to my query? Thanks in advance.

You'll have a problem satisfying "short" and "thorough" at the same time. Then again, it depends on what your definition of thorough is.

many engineering colleges have 'professional development' courses for industry professionals. these are designed as two, three, four day 'crash courses' in various topics. courses can range from 'introduction to the canadian electrical code' to 'electrical engineering for non-engineers' to 'medium voltage cable insulation and performance in nuclear power plant applications'. shorter than a full-blown class but they can be pricey (say, $1000 US for a three day course).
