The LU112 apprentices are helping to put on the annual picnic in the park.  All IBEW members and their families are invited to come down to Columbia Park at the band shell at 12:00pm Noon on September 15th for food, games, and raffles.  There will be children’s games, bounce houses, and adult games.  As always there will be raffles for various items donated by many of our local businesses.  Hope to see you there!!!


The LU112-NECA Electrical Apprenticeship Program
Updated On: Aug 09, 2018

The finest electrical workers in the country receive their training through the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC) of National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and Internation Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).

It is a model education partnership which produces the best-trained, most up-to-date electrical apprentices and journeyman in the country.  All of the $100 milion annually spent is privately funded.

The LU112-NECA Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (JATC)  serves its IBEW and NECA members by providing classroom training and administration for apprenticeships in the electrical industry.


An Inside Wireman installs and maintains lighting, receptacles, motors, heating equipment, and systems found in commercial and industrial facilities.  The Inside Wireman also installs conduit systems that contain power cables or control cables feeding different types of equipment.

The work of an Inside Wireman can vary from installing a Fire Alarm System or Security System in a high-rise building to installing conduit in a ditch on the outside of the building.  Other work can include installation and repair of temporary power, grounding systems, services, traffic signals and outdoor lighting, instrumentation and process control systems, energy management systems, and telephone and data systems.


Apprenticeship opportunities are available in the Construction Electrican Program only at this time.  The Construction Electrician program covers work in the Industrial, Commercial and Residential areas.  These are great jobs at a living wage with healthcare benefits and retirement.

The Construction Electrician program is a 5 year program, with graduates eligible to take the State Journeyman Electrician (01) Exam. Once an applicant completes the application process (see how to apply), including documentation, aptitude test and interview and is called off the eligibility list, they will be registered in to the Apprenticeship Program, and they become a First Year Apprentice.  The apprentice will be placed on the job with one of our Signatory Contractors and begin earning their 8,000 hours of on-the-job training as well as their hourly wage.  Approximately one week, every six weeks, the apprentice will attend related training (school) here at the Training Center.  The apprentice does not get paid during their week of school, however they are eligible to receive unemployment during this time. At the end of every school year, apprentices are required to take and pass Performance Evaluations, before entering their next year of school.

Books and tuition are due at the beginning of each of the 5 school years, which is usually in July and costs approximately $1000 -$1500, depending on which year of school you are entering.  First year apprentices should anticipate purchasing approximately $400 in tools during when beginning their apprenticeship.  Books and tuition are non-refundable and due before the school year starts.  Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis. First year apprentices start out at 40% of journeyman scale which at this time is $17.40/hour plus medical / dental / vision benefits and pension.
