While every electrical worker must possess a common foundation of skill and knowledge to become successful, each electrical worker is given the opportunity to choose a particular area of focus requiring a specific skill set and body of knowledge.
Each focus area has a separate apprenticeship program and set of requirements associated with it. However, basic entry requirements for becoming an apprentice in any of the programs are similar.
The following requirements are typical for individuals applying to be accepted into an IBEW/NECA Joint Apprenticeship Training Program (J.A.T.C.).
- Minimum 18 Years of Age
- High School Diploma or G.E.D.
- One Year of High School Algebra or Post-High School Equivalent
- Qualifying Score on an Aptitude Test
- Drug Free
- Valid Driver’s License
Applications must be made in person at the Local 24 JATC: 2699 West Patapsco Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21230. For the Eastern Shore apprenticeship program, applicants must apply in person at Local 24’s Salisbury office: 106 Circle Avenue, Suite 205, Salisbury, MD 21801.
