The Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for Southern Nevada (Electrical JATC) has been training skilled apprentice electricians since 1947 and is in partnership with the Southern Nevada Chapter National Electrical Contractors Association ( NECA), the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local #357 (IBEW), the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC), the Nevada State Apprenticeship Council (NSAC) and the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT).

The goal of the Electrical JATC is to give our students a well-rounded electrical education so that they can "hit the ground running" when they graduate as Journeymen-Wiremen. To accomplish this goal, we provide our apprentices with 900 hours of classroom training and over 8000 hours of on the job training over a five year period. Upon completion of our curriculum and on-the-job training the apprentice receive certificates through the NJATC and NSAC documenting their successful completion of the program. All electrical apprentices receive incremental raises as they reach certain set milestones. They also receive retirement plans and medical coverage for themselves and their families.

Training workers with a valuable, skilled trade will insure employment opportunities for the trainee as well as ensure that they and their family will have health coverage and a good retirement. It will also help ensure that Nevada will have the workforce available to deal with the large infrastructure improvements needed throughout the state.
