Earning a Degree as an Electrical Apprentice

by | Sep 13, 2018 | Industry Info

The ability to provide high performing, skilled professionals on each of our projects is evidenced through the quality of work provided, ability to meet schedules and deadlines, and overall professionalism on the jobsite. Many of our electricians receive this valuable training through the electrical training ALLIANCE (formally NJATC), which is a joint committee of NECA and the IBEW. Their goal is to provide the Electrical Construction Industry with the most highly trained and skilled workforce possible. 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.

While apprentices receive much of the technical training they need throughout the course of this program, they can gain additional knowledge in the form of business and financial skills, along with computer training.  In partnership with Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ), individuals can earn a minimum of 24 hours of college credits for their apprenticeship training, as well as the opportunity to receive an AS Degree in Industrial Management through this college degree program. The Industrial Management Technology is a mid-level management degree program which focuses on broad, transferable skills and stress understanding and demonstration of the following elements of management planning, supervisory skills in the Industrial Management industry:
