Apprenticeship:

NEJATC's goal is to provide the highest quality training to those interested in a career in the various fields within the electrical industry. The NEJATC trains apprentices to become an Inside Journeyman Wireman. Inside Journeymen Wiremen are electrical workers who install the power, lighting, controls and other electrical equipment in commercial and industrial buildings.

In addition to receiving skill training on the job, our apprentices are provided trade related classroom training that produces competency and pride that lead to true craftsmanship. Quite often some local training committees provide special classes with hands-on training to support classroom lectures and discussions.
