NECA is a proud participant in several apprenticeship programs. These three-to-five year programs are designed primarily to educate an entry-level person in conjunction with his or her on-the-job training, and help him or her to become a highly qualified electrician or low voltage installer/technician. The Joint Apprenticeship Training Committees (JATCs) are affiliated with the National JATC (NJATC) (www.njatc.org), and are jointly funded by contractors and union members.
