Our first year students start out as first period apprentices. After 1000 hours of on- the-job (OJT) training, and satisfactory progress in the classroom, you would then move up to the second period (or second year). After the successful completion of your first year classroom training and 2000 OJT hours, you would move up again to third period. After the third period, apprentices would advance with each successful class year completion combined with 1500 OJT hours.
Upon passing the 5th year in the classroom and completing 8000 hours of OJT, you would be granted Journeyman Wireman status. At this point, you would be awarded IBEW Journeyman papers, as well as a New York State certificate qualifying you as a Journeyman Wireman.
Your Journeyman status is recognized in every IBEW local in the United States and Canada. Plus our program is recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE), and is equivalent to 55 college credit hours .
IBEW Local 910 and Clinton Community College have teamed up to offer all of our apprentices a opportunity to receive an associates degree.
