HISTORY OF CHATTANOOGA ELECTRICAL APPRENTICESHIP
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is the largest electrical union in the world. The IBEW represents workers' rights in all areas of electrical and telecommunication industries.
The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) represents union electrical contractors, who guarantee their installations, who perform quality work on time and on budget, and who take a special interest in their employees.
To provide the highly skilled workforce necessary to meet customer needs and ensure job satisfaction for electrical workers, the IBEW and NECA teamed up to sponsor the most rigorous and respected apprenticeship training programs.
Established in 1941, the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC) has developed uniform standards that are used nationwide to train thousands of qualified men and women for demanding and rewarding careers in the electrical industries.
