Welcome to JATC 153
JATC (Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee) is a top-ranking resource for electrical industry training. Our curriculum exceeds industry standards so that our students can enter the workforce with the confidence and skill set that equips them for success. Through our simplified, yet thorough training course, we develop students into well-versed apprentices and eventually, skilled journeyman electricians ready to utilize their experience on the job.
Who We Are
With JATC's apprenticeship program, you make money while you learn how to make money. Our organization is a branch of the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee—now called The Electrical Training Alliance. This alliance is a joint effort between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). This alliance has trained over 350,000 apprentices to journeyman through local affiliate programs like JATC153.
What makes our program so appealing? Our hands-on approach to education offers our students employment opportunities to work 40 hours a week and attend class only two nights a week. It means you “earn while you learn.” Our program actually does the job placement for you, so you don't have to concern yourself with the job search.
And the benefits don't end there. By completing our course, apprentices will gain access to an industry with benefits like:
Excellent wage rates
Paid health insurance
A promising career with job security
Safer working conditions
Guaranteed pension benefits
