Construction Inside Wireman Electrician and Maintenance Technician Apprenticeship Programs

Anyone wishing to enter this trade must have the aptitude to learn--and be able to develop through training--the knowledge, skills and ability necessary to perform the tasks associated with it.

The Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee is a partnership of labor and management organized to train those wishing to undertake such a challenge. The training consists of a two-part program of work and school. During the day the apprentice will earn pay while working on a construction project and will attend school at night; learning not only electrical theory, but also valuable hands-on laboratory experience.

Residential Electrician Apprenticeship and Service Assistant Trainee Programs

The installation of electrical power in homes, condominiums, townhouses and apartments must not be faulted. When the walls are up almost all of this work is not visible and any defect can cause serious damage to the structure.
The damage to the building can be repaired, but not the possible injury to the occupants. The individuals working on such structures must have the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to perform proficiently the wiring tasks associated with this trade.

The LIJATC must select and train individuals who are willing to learn and apply their training to the job at hand. Because the science of electricity is changing at an increasing rate, the residential/service markets are directly affected.
