Along with the unique opportunity to “earn while they learn” during their on-the-job training, apprentices receive over 200 hours of classroom training each year.
All apprentices complete a 5-year apprenticeship program which is registered, in compliance, and approved by the Bureau of Apprenticeship (U.S. Dept. of Labor). The program covers the entire spectrum of residential, commercial, and industrial electrical installations. The curriculum includes a wide range of education in areas such as:
Lighting and Power Distribution
High Voltage Distribution
The National Electrical Code
Apprentices also cover specialized areas such as:
Programmable Logic Controllers
Fire Alarm Systems
Job Site Management & Supervision
The classroom instruction also includes First Aid, CPR, and OSHA Training. This allows the apprentice to be aware of safety concerns and to have the ability to act accordingly in any emergency situation.
By the fifth year, and upon graduating, you will be a certified electrician. Apprenticeship training provides all of the knowledge necessary for an individual to perform tasks in a professional manner while helping the individual to sharpen his or her skills and abilities to be the best workers in the electrical construction and maintenance industry.
