Welcome to the Fresno Area Electrical Training Center. We are a jointly sponsored apprenticeship program of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers(IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association(NECA). Our goal is to provide the industry with craftsman that have the attitude, skills, and knowledge to be successful in the electrical trade. This is accomplished over the course of 5 years of on the job training, as well as trade related classroom instruction. Because the electrical field is constantly changing we must change with it. We offer journeyman level training to keep our workforce up to date on the latest work practices and technologies.
It is tradition that apprentices BBQ before the union meetings, which are held the second Tuesday of each month. This is a good opportunity for apprentices to get out and meet your fellow brothers/sisters. If you would like to help out be at the JATC around 5pm.
