    The Electrical Training Academy is a four (4) year DOL Registered Electrical Apprenticeship Program. 

    We offer several paths to a registered apprenticeship. 

    Why become a Union Electrical Worker?

    ·  Earn while you learn 
    Why pay high tuition costs when you can earn while you learn? Apprentices start earning a livable wage as soon as they start working. They receive pay advancement throughout their apprenticeship.

    ·  Great employment opportunities 
    The industry employs over 650,000 electrical workers and 70,000 electrical contracting firms and produces an annual volume of over $95 billion.

    ·  State-of-the-art training 
    Our goal is to provide the highest quality training in the electrical industry. Apprentices are provided trade related classroom training that produces competency and pride that leads to true craftsmanship. And, union programs graduate about three times as many apprentices to journeyman status as do non-union programs.

    ·  Equal opportunity for all 
    Enrollment of minorities in union apprentice programs is about three times the number enrolled in non-union programs, and there are four times as many women enrolled in union training. Graduation rates of minorities and women from union apprentice programs are three times that of non-union programs. The all-trades graduation rate for union apprentice programs is 82.2 percent, compared with 17.8 percent for non-union programs.
