Apprenticeship

Description of Program:

The Heartland Electrical Apprenticeship Committee sponsors the Electrical Apprenticeship Program. Program completion requires that you perform 640 hours of related class training and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training (OJT).

The Electrical Apprenticeship program is a selective admission program restricted to individuals who are employed in the electrical industry and are working for a participating employer.

Prospective students who are currently working for a participating employer in this area are encouraged to apply for selection to the Apprenticeship Committee before August of each year. The program begins on the first Tuesday of Labor Day each year. A list of of the participating employers is featured below. 

Individuals who are interested in the program must first seek employment with one of the participating employers. Once employed, the individual can then ask the employer to sponsor them within the apprenticeship program.
