APPRENTICES

Along with the unique opportunity to “earn while they learn” during their on-the-job training, apprentices receive over 200 hours of classroom training each year.

All apprentices complete a 5-year apprenticeship program which is registered, in compliance, and approved by the Bureau of Apprenticeship (U.S. Dept. of Labor). The program covers the entire spectrum of residential, commercial, and industrial electrical installations.

What You Can Expect in the Classroom.

Apprenticeship Training

The electrical training ALLIANCE's goal is to provide the Electrical Construction Industry with the most highly trained and skilled workforce possible. While direct training occurs through local training programs, the electrical training ALLIANCE develops enhanced education standards to meet the competitive challenges of today's global market economy.


In addition to receiving skill training on the job, each apprentice is provided with trade-related classroom training that produces competency and pride that lead to true craftsmanship. Quite often, local training committees provide special classes with hands-on training to support classroom lectures and discussions.
