The Toledo Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) is committed to not only providing an educated, well-trained workforce through a cooperative labor-management education program, but also to helping workers develop the complex skills, knowledge and abilities needed to retain highly paid, prestigious jobs in the electrical construction industry. The Toledo Electrical JATC pledges to educate workers through diversified on-the-job training supervised by qualified journeypersons and related technical classroom instruction.
In apprenticeship you literally EARN WHILE YOU LEARN. As you advance through your training, you receive predetermined pay increases. As you develop more complex job skills and improve your knowledge, you are rewarded for your hard work. You also LEARN BY DOING. Your on-the-job training is supervised by a qualified journey-level craftsman.
The Toledo Electrical JATC is a bonafide, registered apprenticeship program with the Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
Following, are the recommended steps (although not required) in the process of completing the apprenticeship of your choice:
Residential Apprenticeship Program - Students spend four (4) years in this particular program, learning to install power, communication, and security systems according to local codes and standards. Upon completion, they become Residential Wiremen and are invited to apply to the Inside/Commercial Electrical Wiring Apprenticeship Program.
Inside/Commercial Electrical Wiring Apprenticeship Five Year Program - Inside electrical construction work involves lay out, assembly, installation, and connection of all electrical apparatus, equipment, fixtures, and wiring used in electrical systems. During this five-year program students attend related trade classes and receive credit from Northwest State Community College . Apprentices complete 8,000 hours of on-the-job training with signatory electrical contractors and, upon completion, receive a journeyman certificate.
Voice-Data-Video (telecommunications) Apprenticeship Program - This three-year apprenticeship program focuses on the telecommunications and data transmission fields and includes trade-related classes for students working toward the Journeyman Installer Technician career path. Apprentices complete 4,500 hours of on-the-job training with signatory electrical contractors and, upon completion, receive a journeyman certificate.
Each of the above apprenticeship programs provide a clear-cut path for career development and occupational training, limited only by one's interest and aptitude. Quality training programs such as these provide workers with the skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary to maintain performance superiority leading to a high standard of living.
The recruitment, selection, employment, and training of apprentices shall be without discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, or age. The sponsor will take affirmative action to provide equal opportunity in apprenticeship and will operate the apprenticeship program as required under Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 30, and the equal employment opportunity regulations of the state of Ohio.
