NECA IBEW 193 JATC Electrical Apprenticeship Program


The JATC partners with NECA to offer apprenticeships in two trades:

  • 5-year Inside Wireman program combining classroom and on-the-job training to produce journeyman electricians skilled in installing and maintaining electrical systems.
  • 3-year Telecommunications program focused on low voltage systems including networks, surveillance and alarms.

Apprentices become IBEW members upon completion. The JATC has trained electricians since 1901. Join us for a rewarding, hands-on apprenticeship.
