The finest and most highly trained electrical workers in the country receive their training through local joint apprenticeship training committees utilizing the standardized education programs developed by the Electrical Training ALLIANCE for the Electrical Industry, supporting both the National Electrical Contractors Associations (NECA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
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, the Electrical Training ALLIANCE 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. Each year, participants in the electrical training ALLIANCE programs pay in excess of six hundred million dollars in taxes. This is truly a model program as it takes little to nothing from the taxpayers while training some of the most productive workers in the world who thereby pay tremendous dollars to the country.
The electrical training ALLIANCE developed 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.
