In fact, we have a passion for it. The traditional classroom experience, however? That we’re less enthusiastic about—not to mention the thousands of dollars in student loans that can come with it. As licensed electricians who’ve come up through the Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (JATC) electrical program, we live life hands-on, working on some of the most fascinating and complex electrical projects around Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland. And because we entered this well-paying, in-demand field through the JATC, we acquired our training completely tuition-free. It also means we’re employed by Electrical Alliance contractors as skilled union electricians receiving competitive pay and benefits, and continued education not available to non-union electricians.
Top 3 reasons to pursue a career in electrical through the JATC:
Not only can your expertise never be outsourced, but you can earn over $96,000, plus $40,300 in benefits, annually upon completion of our five-year apprenticeship program.
The JATC program combines on-the-job training with classroom work to create a fast-paced learning experience that will keep you engaged.
