  • General Information
    Updated On: Dec 350, 2020


    The Fresno Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) requires electrical apprentices to complete a structured, national curriculum. This consists of class work and paid, on-the-job training, leading to their becoming journeymen wiremen or technicians/installers. All JATC graduates have superior skills in a wide range of electrical and electronic installations, and they continue to learn as the electrical industry changes. They know how to function as part of a team to get your electrical job done right the first time, on schedule and on budget.

    On-the-job training will take place on various construction sites or facilities. You must be able to work on your feet for long periods at a time.  You must also be capable of lifting heavy objects (30-50 lbs) on a regular basis.  You will be required to follow all safety instructions and protocols established by the employers.  Most of the construction process is done outdoors and in the elements.  You will be exposed to hot, cold and wet conditions while performing the duties of your job.  Excessive tardiness and absences will not be tolerated and will carry disciplinary actions if this becomes a problem.

    In-class training will be scheduled on a quarterly basis throughout the year.  Students will be required to attend all sessions as scheduled, on time.  Students will attend one week of unpaid training each quarter and will be encouraged to apply for unemployment benefits during that time period.  Homework will be assigned in between class sessions and must be completed.  Students are assessed in five categories and must achieve a satisfactory rating in each one in order to continue in the program without penalty.  The five categories are:

    • Homework
    • Personal attitude – come to class prepared and willing to learn
    • Classroom attitude – get along with your fellow students and the instructor
    • Lab performance – engaged in hands on activities as prescribed
    • Test score – Must maintain a minimum of 75% or higher

    Without a strong commitment and ongoing effort to excel in this apprenticeship, students may face disciplinary action such as suspensions from work, withholding of pay increases and possibly termination from the program.

    This is a very challenging yet rewarding opportunity to become one of the best workers in the electrical industry.  Please consider these requirements seriously as you ponder your potential acceptance into our program.  Good luck!
