It is the responsibility of the NECA-IBEW Apprenticeship and Training Program to provide training opportunities and services to contractors, apprentices, and journeyworkers in the electrical industry for the participating areas.
In apprenticeship you literally EARN WHILE YOU LEARN. As you advance through your training, you receive predetermined pay increases. As you develop more complex job skills and improve your knowledge, you are rewarded for your hard work. You also LEARN BY DOING. A qualified journey-level craftsman supervises your On the Job Training.
Following an electrician through these apprenticeship programs and into their careers as journey level workers, combined with "state of the art" training facilities, highly trained instructional staff and meaningful continuing education provides the highest quality, professional installations by the very best trained workforce.
We have three electrical apprenticeship training programs.
- Construction (Inside) Electrician,
- Installer-Technician (Voice-Data-Video) and
- Residential Electrician
Each apprenticeship requires on the job training as well as related (classroom) instruction. The apprentice will be paid for on the job training and Wisconsin is unique in requiring employers to pay apprentices their hourly wage while attending a portion of their related instruction. Investigate each program to determine which apprenticeship program is right for you.
