Training

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) represents approximately 750,000 members who work in a wide variety of fields, including utilities, construction, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government. The IBEW has members in both the United States and Canada and stands out among the American unions in the AFL-CIO because it is among the largest and has members in so many skilled occupations.
The National Contractors Association (NECA) is the voice of the electrical contracting industry, working to promote higher standards, quality workmanship and training for a skilled workforce. It is the management association for electrical contractors. NECA represents thousands of employers who guarantee their installations and perform quality work on time and on budget. NECA electrical contractors satisfy their customers by doing the job right the first time.
The finest electrical workers in the country receive their training through the National Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (NJATC) of National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). Its model education partnership, which produces the best-trained, most up-to-date electrical apprentices and journeyman in the country, has clearly demonstrated the most cost effective way to train qualified craft workers. The Mission of the NJATC is to develop and standardize training and to educate the members of the IBEW and NECA, insuring the Electrical Construction Industry with the most highly trained and skilled workforce possible. Skill, Knowledge and Attitude are the main focus in all of the NJATC’s training programs. The latest training schedule will provide information on dates for application and enrollment.
