All NJATC apprenticeships are registered with the American Council on Education (ACE), which reviews and recommends awarding college semester credit hours for the completion of rigorous apprenticeship courses.
With the growing demand for skilled electrical professionals who can deal with the complex wiring environments of today's world, NECA and IBEW are committed to providing the best trained, best educated workforce possible," says NJATC Executive Director A.
The NJATC offers four different apprenticeship programs in the electrical industry, including outside lineman, inside wireman, installer/technician, and residential wireman.
The NJATC has recently begun a campaign to promote this career path to more students and those, such as high school guidance counselors and teachers, who may advise them on career issues.
The NJATC program is organized by geographical areas, with participating IBEW local unions and NECA chapters now funding more than 300 local programs.
The NJATC program has also formed many alliances with colleges and universities to help electrical workers obtain academic degrees.
