BCJEATC: Bay City Joint Electrical Apprenticeship & Training Committee
Many of the finest electrical workers in the country receive their training through the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee of National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
It’s a model education partnership which produces the best trained, most up-to-date electrical apprentices and journeymen in the country. All of the $100 million that is spent annually is privately funded.
The NJATC was created eight decades ago and has developed into what perhaps is the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind. Local programs affiliated with the NJATC have trained over 500,000 apprentices to journeyman status without cost to the taxpayers. This joint program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has clearly demonstrated the most cost-effective way to train qualified craft workers.
Those in NJATC training programs are not a burden to the taxpayers as they are earning while they are learning. Each year, participants in the NJATC programs pay in excess of six hundred million dollars in taxes. This is truly a model program as it takes little to nothing from the taxpayers while training some of the most productive workers in the world who thereby pay tremendous dollars to the country. Skill, Knowledge and Attitude are the main focus in all of the NJATC’s training programs.
