What exactly is Apprenticeship?

Earn while you learn

An electrical apprenticeship at Puget Sound Electrical JATC is an exceptional way to learn skills in the electrical field while working in the industry. It is an “Earn While you Learn” environment. Apprentices attend school one or two days a week on a quarterly basis. The classroom and lab instruction are the foundation for the skills used in the field. While on the job, apprentices work with licensed journey-workers on various types of electrical jobs.

Applications taken year-round

All applications for apprenticeship are completed online. There is a $75.00 non-refundable application fee payable online at the time of application.
