A Message From the Training Director...


      It is that time of year again! Last day to turn in applications for the 2015-2016 school year is Friday February 27, 2015. Make sure you bring in your official high school transcripts (or GED score page), your valid drivers license, and twenty-five dollars (cash, check, money order). Don't let the start of your career be delayed by a deadline, we will see you soon!


     These past few weeks we had a lot going on here at the apprenticeship school. First, we had 71 fifth years top out. We held a graduation banquet in their honor at the Chattanooga Marriott- Thank you to everyone that joined us in celebrating their achievements. Congratulations to you all, pictures will be on the facebook page soon. Second, we held orientation for our 103 new first years, and they start Summer Bootcamp at the beginning of June.

More information about the graduation can be found in the following article from The Chattanoogan:

     Today, we broke ground on our new 3,500 square foot multi-lab building. This will be used to help accommodate the growing number of apprentices we have, by keeping them up-to-date with the technological advances in the ever changing electrical field.


     All of our acceptance letters have officially been mailed out. Thank you to everyone who applied, we really appreciate it. We had over 400 great applicants this year. For the next class we were able to accept 103 new apprentices. Congratulations to those who made it in this year. For those of you who didn't, don't get discouraged, your application is on file for two years after your interview date.


Welcome to our updated website!

     We have worked very hard on this new layout, and hope that it provides easier access so that you are able to get the information you need. I will be posting updates about the school and apprentices regularly, so keep checking back for more information. Thanks for visiting, and please enjoy this short video of our first year apprentices at boot camp:
