The 50-hour course is split into five 10-hour classes.  Levels 1-5 consist of both lecture and hands-on labs.  In order to register and attend any of these courses, a 10-12 hour online prerequisite must be completed.

Are you a Veteran discharged within the last seven years?

The PSEJATC in cooperation with the Puget Sound Chapter NECA and IBEW Local 46 have established a new veterans program (V.I.C.E.), Veterans in Construction Electrical.  This program is designed to assist military veterans who posess an aptitude in the electrical industry to gain employment and career opportunities. Upon acceptance into the V.I.C.E. program, the veteran will follow a six-week evening schedule designed to prepare them for a career within our electrical apprenticeship program.  The 5-year program consists of curriculum derived from the NJATC (National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee) which covers basic electrical theory, circuitry training, mathematics, and electrical/construction safety training. Participants will receive OSHA 30 training along with lab training in conduit bending and electrical wiring.


If you are interested in the V.I.C.E. program, please contact the Puget Sound Electrical JATC at the number above.
