Apprenticeship Information

Apprenticeship training is a combination of classroom work and on-the-job training. They take the knowledge learned in the classroom and apply it to jobsite situations. All of this is done under the supervision of skilled journeyman electricians and instructors. The classroom work is part-time, and the on-the-job training is full-time work.

The apprentice program is a five-year program, and their training is free. The only cost to the apprentice is their schoolbooks, which they keep.

We are accepting applications throughout the year! The hall is open M-F from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
