IBEW / NECA ELECTRICAL APPRENTICESHIPS

HISTORY/FACTS
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) was established in 1891 and is now the world’s largest electrical union. In partnership with the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), IBEW and NECA have established apprenticeship and training programs to serve the electrical industry in the U.S. and Canada.

RECENT CHARITABLE PROJECTS
Apprentice and journeymen involvement in projects through Habitat for Humanity, KJR Haunted House and assorted non-profit schools have made a positive impact in our communities.

DESCRIPTION
Apprenticeship programs are offered for Inside Wiremen, Lineman, Residential Wiremen and Low Energy/Sound and Communication Technicians. These electrical workers install, maintain and repair electrical systems in compliance with state, national and local electrical code.

APPRENTICESHIPS
IBEW/NECA apprenticeship programs provide opportunities to “earn while you learn,” through paid on-the-job training, along with classroom instruction. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalent. Applicants must also meet Algebra/Basic Math requirements, which may vary depending on the program applied for. Minimum scores on aptitude tests may be required depending on the program applied for.

JOURNEYMAN CONTINUING EDUCATION
IBEW/NECA training centers provide classes for journey level electrical workers to maintain their state certifications as well as to keep up with current technology advances and code changes.
