The Western Central Pennsylvania Electricians' Training Center


The IBEW electrical apprenticeship is a joint program between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).

Apprenticeship programs are designed to have students work and go to school at the same time. This allows students to make a living, gain valuable on-the-job experience, and complete the education requirements needed to become a licensed electrician.


Once accepted to the program, you will attend both classroom instruction as well as become enrolled in an apprenticeship program where you will work one-on-one with some of the top union journeymen in the electrical industry.

You will be challenged on many levels. Becoming a certified electrician requires a great deal of knowledge and skill in the field as well as learning to conduct yourself in a professional manner on every job you encounter. Most importantly, you must become completely proficient in all of the safety issues that electricians confront on a daily basis. The JATC (Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee) program provides apprenticeship training that makes our members desirable employees and will provide you with all the tools you need to accomplish this and become a success in the electrical market.

The Electrical Training Alliance is a nationally recognized program that produces highly qualified electricians who get the job done right the first time. Our members are the best trained electricians in the world, and take great pride and dignity in their work. That is why so many companies across the country prefer to hire electricians with a degree. This training program was created to blend classroom and online learning together to improve the experience for all IBEW apprenticeships.

The goal of the Electrical Training Alliance is to provide the Electrical Construction Industry with the most highly trained and skilled workforce possible. While direct training occurs through local training programs, the electrical training ALLIANCE develops enhanced education standards to meet the competitive challenges of today's global market economy.

A classroom education cannot teach you everything. But by joining an apprenticeship you are going to “earn as you learn” through on-the-job-training (OJT). In addition to OJT, you will receive hands-on training in a classroom environment similar to daily work situations.

Want to be among the best in the electrical industry? Do you think you have the aptitude and skills necessary to complete a thorough 5-year apprenticeship program? If so, contact the Western Central Pennsylvania - Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC).
