What we do
The mission of the Southwestern Idaho Electrical JATC is to educate the members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the National Electrical Contractors Association; insuring and providing the Electrical Construction Industry with the most highly trained and highly skilled workforce possible.
The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) jointly sponsor apprenticeship training programs that offer you the opportunity to earn wages and benefits and while you learn, the skills needed for a trade that can be both challenging and rewarding. You literally Earn-While-You-Learn. As an apprentice, you will have the chance to use your mind, as well as your physical skills, to complete work in a variety of settings with the constant opportunity to learn something new.
We work closely with the SWIJATC. They are a key part of our success and very important to the electrical industry.
