When you decide to CONSTRUCT YOUR FUTURE and become an electrical worker, the next choice you need to make is what type of worker you want to be. As an electrical worker, you have many options!
The electrical training ALLIANCE (previously called NJATC) was created over 70 years ago as a joint training program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) aimed at training the best electrical workers the industry has to offer. Today, the electrical training ALLIANCE has developed into the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind, having trained over 350,000 apprentices to journeyman status through local affiliate programs.
Over the years, we have continually trained the best craftsperson in the industry without cost to the taxpayers. Students in the electrical training ALLIANCE training programs earn while they learn by doing apprenticeships. Not only does this allow students to earn an income while in school, it also creates new tax revenue for the economy.
The electrical training ALLIANCE develops uniform standards that are adopted and used nationwide to select and train thousands of qualified men and women each year. Through the electrical training ALLIANCE, the IBEW and NECA have hundreds of local programs offering apprenticeship and training in the following areas:
- Residential Wireman
- Journey-Level Worker Lineman
- Journey-Level Worker Tree Trimmer
- Journey-Level Worker Inside Wireman
- Telecommunication VDV Installer-Technician
The electrical training ALLIANCE reaches beyond the textbook, incorporating advanced technology in all aspects of training. Blended learning enables students to continue training remotely, bridging the gap between an apprenticeship and learning in the classroom. The electrical training ALLIANCE encourages training centers to embrace new technologies and offers ongoing technical courses to support all facilities using its curriculum. Since instructors and students can connect virtually, training on the go is easier than ever. Blended Learning also enhances the classroom time as Instructors can spend more time with hands-on instruction rather than going over homework.
Specialty trade skills mean nothing without a solid foundation of core skills. Our core curriculum allows students to specialize in their trade while still becoming a well-rounded craftsperson. Every region requires different skills from electrical workers.
The electrical training ALLIANCE provides the flexibility to train for unique demands by offering core and advanced studies. The core curriculum establishes the foundation of skills necessary to be a Journey-Level Worker. The Advanced Studies curriculum creates alternative training paths to customize your training centers' workforce to specific market demands the contractors and their customers demand.
To accommodate students and instructors, we have at least one training center in each state. Each of these training centers offers courses uniquely designed for the location.
