The Electrical Alliance is pleased to announce the 2019 graduating class of the Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (JATC) Apprenticeship Program. On Saturday, June 1st, graduates were honored in a celebration held in Greenbelt, MD. These men and women completed the program and became Journeyman Electricians over intensive classroom and job site training. As apprentices, they began earning good wages on day one of their training. With their honed skills and newfound knowledge, these graduates have secured high-paying, in-demand careers that offer generous benefits, all without incurring student loans.
In recognition of May as the National Electrical Safety Month (NESM), the Electrical Alliance (EA) sponsored a safety day event on May 18th at IBEW Local Union 26 headquarters in Lanham, Maryland. All EA contractors’ representatives and employees were invited to the event. Tom Myers, Local 26 President, described the EA Safety Day as an “inaugural event [that] celebrates our industry’s collaborative efforts to protect the safety and health of our workers.”
