Also, a very special thanks goes out to the representatives from Klein Tools, Ideal, and Snap-On for donating a total tool package of over $1000 to distribute to these top apprentices. We here at the JATC would like to congratulate and wish all of these gentlemen a safe and productive career! Thanks for putting in the time and effort to not only improve the program and the trade, but also to elevate the bar for future top apprentice hopefuls.
The NJATC’s goal is to provide the Electrical Construction Industry with the mostly highly trained and highly skilled workforce possible. In addition to receiving skill training on the job, each apprentice is provided with trade related classroom training that produces competency and pride that lead to true craftsmanship.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) jointly sponsor the apprenticeship training program that offers you the opportunity to earn wages and benefits while you learn the skills needed for a trade that can be both rewarding and challenging. You actually "earn while you learn." As an apprentice, you will have the 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. You will receive classroom instruction and jobsite "hands on" training.

Below is a video demonstrating just a few of these simulators and the many training opportunities they will open up for us here at your Peoria Area Electrical JATC!
