Celebrating Our Fall 2020 Graduates

Our apprenticeship program is celebrating ten individuals who graduated from our program in the last six months. Students in the program come from across the US and are at various levels of their careers. Some may come right out of high schools, others are entering our program with two years of technical college completed, and some decided to make a career switch. No matter where they are in their career, each student starts with the basics.


Over four years, students learn about electrical theory, wiring and the National Electric Code. Not only are we providing them electrical knowledge in the industrial field, but also commercial and residential. “If you are looking to expand your knowledge in the electrical trade, becoming an apprentice could be a great option,” comments Allan Hill, a Technical Instructor for our apprenticeship classes.

Part of apprenticeship is gaining hands-on experiences. Students are doing more than learning in a classroom; they have on-the-job training and work with other team members on job sites. We also assign them a Career Coach, like a mentor, to guide them in their career. Hill shares that there are many career opportunities after apprenticeship. “Apprentices can become journeyman, leaders and even a job foreman if they stick to it.”

Not only are the Career Coaches helping them, but our in-house apprenticeship program also has passionate teachers ready to guide the students. Hill said his favorite part of being a teacher is talking with apprentices and hearing each of their stories. “Plus, it gives me a chance to learn from them,” he adds.


After completing the apprenticeship program, all graduates can take the Electrical Journeyman Test. They continue their career journey to one of our job sites across the US in Georgia, Utah, Nebraska or Iowa. Our graduates and their current location are:

Calling All Introverts
