The Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (Electrical JATC): The goal of the Electrical JATC is to give our students a well-rounded electrical education so that they can “hit the ground running” when they graduate as Journeymen-Wiremen. To accomplish this goal, we provide our apprentices with 900 hours of classroom training and over 8000 hours of on the job training over a five year period. Upon completion of our curriculum and on-the-job training the apprentice receive certificates through the NJATC and NSAC documenting their successful completion of the program. All electrical apprentices receive incremental raises as they reach certain set milestones. They also receive retirement plans and medical coverage for themselves and their families.
Western Apprenticeship Coordinators Association (WACA): There are three programs, each taking a different time frame to complete: Electrician (inside wireman), five years; telecommunications installer/ technician, three years; and residential wireman, three years. More info at:
