Tuition-Free Classroom Training

Excellent News!

Residential, Commercial & Industrial Electrical Work

Tuition-Free Classroom Training

The heart of training is our Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Program (EJATC), a regimented training program that assures competency in the standardized skills needed to be an electrician.

 

The apprentice combines on-the-job work experience with classroom training. The classroom training takes place 1 day a week. Apprentices in both our Plattsburgh and Watertown programs would be assigned to one of our local electrical contractors (click here to see who LU 910 contractors are). As you learn by doing, you are also paid directly by the contractor with whom you are employed. In this process, you receive guaranteed promotions and pay raises, in addition to learning a new trade.

 

The pay structure for our apprentices is based on a six (6) period system.

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. 

Classes are held from September through June

Related classroom instruction consists of a minimum of 900 hours of classroom training over a 5-year period. Classes are held from September through June.
