What Is Apprenticeship?

  • Apprenticeship is a well organized and supervised method which industries use to train people with little or no prior knowledge of a craft or trade, to become capable, qualified craftsmen or journeymen. It is an "earn while you learn program". The "on the job" portion of the training is a full time, well paid job.
  • The apprentices are employed workers. They have a contract which includes regular wage increases and diversified training.
  • You are paid good wages while you learn.
  • You will gain experience using the most modern practices.
  • You will work under the direction of a competent journeyman who will teach you the trade in the shop and at the job site. You will receive close personal attention.
  • You will attend evening classes a minimum of six hours each week to receive technical instruction related to the job. This is one reason for high academic entrance requirements.
  • Your work experience reports, school grades, and attendance will be reviewed by the JATC before each wage increase is granted. (Satisfactory progress results in automatic wage increases.)
  • An opportunity to become a member of the most respected and progressive Union in the Building Construction Trades: The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (lBEW).
  • The opportunity to "earn" a journey level status and certification which is recognized throughout the United States. This journeyman ticket is security for yourself and your family for life!

Five Year Program
The apprenticeship program consists of five years of classroom related study at night. Each apprentice attends a minimum of 160 hours of schooling each of the five years of the apprenticeship. The classes are held at the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committees facilities. The classroom related study, coupled with at least 8000 on the job training hours, is a time proven method of graduating a skilled and competent journey level Electrician.

Job Description
The Electrical Construction Trade requires physical effort on the part of the apprentice to do ladder and scaffold climbing, pulling, crawling, crouching, working in cramped or confined quarters and the lifting of 25 to 50 pound objects on a fairly constant schedule. The individual must possess the comprehensive ability to follow specific instructions. Because wiring is frequently keyed in color for connecting purposes, the worker cannot be color blind. Depending on the job, the work may be performed either indoors or outdoors with the major portion of duties being indoors, semi-sheltered, or unfinished buildings.

Future - How Far Can The Apprentice Go?

  • Apprenticeship in the Electrical Construction industry is not a "blind alley" occupation. The apprentice's ability and ambition are the only limiting factors.
  • Apprentices can continue working as Journeymen. Wages and job security for the highly skilled and qualified are increasing.
  • With experience and study, they can become a foreman, superintendent or contractor.
  • They may become a contractor and own their own business. Many of our contractors started their careers as apprentices.
  • There is an increasing demand for Journeymen who are skilled in the installation and maintenance of automatic controls, including industrial electronic circuitry. The apprentice will receive intensive training in these areas.
  • They may qualify themselves for special work with the city, county, state, and federal governments.
  • They may advance to positions of responsibility in their union. There is a great need for excellent union leadership. Union leadership is earned through study, hard work, long hours, experience, service, and a sincere respect for others.
  • They may specialize in labor-management relations.

We Are Selective

  • We are seeking men and women of all races who demonstrate the best characteristics, aptitude, motivation and personality traits conducive to success in our trade. All qualified candidates are interviewed by employers and union representatives in an effort to select the best candidates.
  • A good candidate is one with a record of having done well in school, especially in math and science, one who has demonstrated reliability and a sincere desire to succeed and one who has a positive attitude and desire to work hard.
  • Don't be influenced by those who see the electrical construction trade as an occupation requiring only a strong back and a weak mind. The electrical trades are becoming more technical each day.

With Apprenticeship There Is A Proud Heritage
Apprenticeship is one of the finest opportunities ever offered to anyone anywhere. It should be treated as such. It is granted only to those who are the very best and most worthy. It is a great opportunity to be selected for the apprenticeship. All who are accepted for apprenticeship should understand that they are indebted to an industry which is devoted to their well being. Their respect and loyalty will be to those Journeymen who teach them the trade, the contractors who pay their wages, and to the customers they serve.

IBEW-NECA Completion Rate
Over 94 percent of our apprentices complete the program and have meaningful careers as highly paid journeymen electrical workers. This success rate is virtually unmatched in the electrical industry and testifies to our personal commitment to you.

Government Approved
Our program is registered with the California Division of Apprenticeship Standards and the Veteran's Administration. Veteran benefits are available if you qualify.

Equal Opportunity Employers
Applicants will be selected based on the highest qualifications, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Both males and females are encouraged to make an application.

Terms Used
Journeyman, craftsman, wireman, and lineman are terms used to identify levels of competency, not sex. Females completing apprenticeship are proud of their journey level status in the electrical industry.
