Information for Electrical Apprentices and Helpers

Welcome to the Apprentices/Helpers page. If you are already attending classes or want to start a career in the electrical field this is the place to see what the Electrical Team has to offer you.  The finest electrical workers in the country receive their training through the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). It's a model education partnership which produces the best-trained, most up-to-date electrical apprentices and journeymen in the country. All of the $100 million annually spent is privately funded. On this page you will find links to information explaining what an apprenticeship is all about and how and where to applying for apprenticeship. Some of what the Electrical Team can provide apprentices.
