Why Electrical Construction?
The demand for skilled workers has been increasingly steady, even during times of economic decline.  Through a certified apprenticeship program, you can learn the trade while you earn wages.
Can a career in electrical construction be fulfilling?
Of course!  You can be part of a team that wires  commercial buildings and industrial facilities and build communities that make up our nation.
Will I be able to retire from a construction career?
YES!  The pension plans construction workers contribute to provide them with many years of comfortable retirement.​​​​
When you join an accredited apprenticeship, you will start receiving contributions to your retirement from the first day on the job
How much will I make as an apprentice?
You will be working for one of our signatory contractors who pay wages and benefits according to the locally negotiated collective bargaining agreement.  As an apprentice, you are guaranteed to earn the wages spelled out under this agreement.  For a list of the current wages​​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Click Here.

About Us

The Tampa Area Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC), is a partnership between the​ Florida West Coast Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union 915.
It is the JATC’s responsibility to recruit and train Apprentices to meet the ever-growing needs of the Electrical Industry. In addition to training Apprentices in the necessary skills required to be an Electrician, the JATC also provides an extended education program of skills update and improvement courses to Local 915 members.
Who wires the industrial plants and factories, the warehouses, the office buildings, the shopping centers small and large…and who’s called when something goes wrong with the electrical system in such facilities? Generally, the call goes to our contractors.
And to get the work done, they need highly skilled journeymen wiremen (electricians).
That’s why the industry created a five-year apprenticeship program-involving in-depth knowledge of all types of electrical work.  Journeymen are in short supply, with the number reducing as workmen trained 20 to 30 years ago retire. Our industry has devoted hundreds of millions of dollars and resources to gear up and train more and more of these highly skilled electricians…the backbone of the electrical construction industry. As part of that structure, your career would involve interesting, ever-changing work, with opportunities galore.
