Welcome back,


NECA sponsors more than 300 joint training programs in the U.S., a program that allow electrical apprentices to earn a paycheck while learning their craft.

Electrical apprenticeships last for five years, with the apprentice taking on more responsibility and earning a higher wage each year. Apprentices completing the program are known as journeymen electricians.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is NECA’s partner in local and national joint apprenticeship training committees and centers.
