It is the responsibility of the NECA-IBEW Apprenticeship and Training Program to provide training opportunities and services to contractors, apprentices, and journeyworkers in the electrical industry for the participating areas. 

In apprenticeship you literally EARN WHILE YOU LEARN.  As you advance through your training, you receive predetermined pay increases.  As you develop more complex job skills and improve your knowledge, you are rewarded for your hard work.  You also LEARN BY DOING.  A qualified journey-level craftsman supervises your On the Job Training.  

Following an electrician through these apprenticeship programs and into their careers as journey level workers, combined with "state of the art" training facilities, highly trained instructional staff and meaningful continuing education provides the highest quality, professional installations by the very best trained workforce.  

We have three electrical apprenticeship training programs. 

    • Construction (Inside) Electrician,
    • Installer-Technician (Voice-Data-Video) and
    • Residential Electrician

Each apprenticeship requires on the job training as well as related (classroom) instruction.  The apprentice will be paid for on the job training and Wisconsin is unique in requiring employers to pay apprentices their hourly wage while attending a portion of their related instruction.  Investigate each program to determine which apprenticeship program is right for you.  890 South Central Wisconsin Area  


DSPS Adopts Uniform Electrical Code - Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Effective immediately, the state Electrical Code, as adopted in SPS 316, is uniform for commercial buildings. Municipalities are no longer permitted to write or enforce their own electrical code unless it strictly conforms to SPS 316.

This is the result of a provision contained in the 2015-2017 Wisconsin State Budget (2015 WI Act 55). Act 55 changed chapter 101.86 of Wisconsin Statutes to make Wisconsin’s Electrical Code uniform across the entire state for commercial buildings.

A recent change to the Wisconsin Administrative Code SPS 305 allows an extra three (3) months for trades credential holders to complete and submit their required Continuing Education (CEU) credits prior to license renewal.

Previously, all trades credential holders were required to complete their CEU credits three (3) months before their renewal date.
