Setting you up for success


Puget Sound Electrical JATC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides electrical training to individuals seeking a career in the electrical industry. Our apprentices are members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 46.  Our apprentices are dispatched for work to electrical contractors that are members of the Puget Sound Chapter of the National Electrical Contractor Association (NECA). Apprentices work within the IBEW Local 46 jurisdiction which includes King, Kitsap, Jefferson, and Clallam counties. We are committed to equity, inclusion, and diversity in the apprenticeship and the electrical industry. We endeavor to keep up with the latest electrical industry innovations to keep our curriculum relevant to changes in the industry.

Three locations

The main location of the PSEJATC Apprenticeship is located in Renton, Washington. This is where the majority of our apprentices attend school and receive their training. Classes are held year-round. We have been in Renton since 2001 and continue to improve the quality our classrooms and labs on an ongoing basis. In addition to the main campus in Renton, we also have a location in Sequim, WA. and Bremerton, WA.


Apprentice classes for the Inside Wire and Residential Wire programs are taught on Saturdays at the Sequim Museum for qualifying apprentices. These classes are not open to the public, you must be a registered apprentice in the PSEJATC apprenticeship and live on the peninsula to qualify to attend classes in Sequim. The apprenticeship has been providing class here since 2011.  When needed, apprentices will travel to the Renton location for Craft Certification testing and some labs.


The newest satellite location of the PSEJATC apprenticeship opened in January 2024 in Bremerton at Olympic College.  You must be a registered apprentice in the PSEJATC apprenticeship and live within the qualifying zip codes to attend classes here.  Classes follow the quarterly schedule of the Renton Campus.

Excellence in Training

Our apprentices have graduated to become some of the best qualified electricians around. For generations, they have helped to shape the skyline, infrastructure, and development of Washington State. By joining the PSEJATC apprenticeship, you have more than a job, you have a life-long career.

Earn While you Learn

Our programs provide opportunities to “Earn While you Learn”, through paid on-the-job training, along with quality classroom training. This dual approach to learning gives apprentices the opportunity to receive real life work experience in addition to classroom education.
