Since 1944 the NECA-IBEW Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee have been training individuals to meet the demands of the electrical industry. We were the first electrical apprenticeship program registered with the Department of Labor in the State of Indiana. We have been committed to the mission of our founders which is to educate the members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the National Electrical Contractors Association thereby providing the electrical construction industry with the most highly trained and highly skilled workforce possible.
We are co-sponsored by the National Electrical Contractors Association, Southern Indiana Chapter and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 16. Through apprenticeship, these organizations are raising the skill level of individuals who are performing electrical work in Southern Indiana by providing a training program that will keep pace with the changing technologies of the day.

The electrical training ALLIANCE
The electrical training ALLIANCE (previously called NJATC) was created over 70 years ago as a joint training program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) aimed at training the best electrical workers the industry has to offer. Today, the electrical training ALLIANCE has developed into the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind, having trained over 350,000 apprentices to journeyman status through local affiliate programs. Over the years, we have continually trained the best craftspersons in the industry without cost to the taxpayers. Students in the electrical training ALLIANCE training programs earn while they learn by doing apprenticeships. Not only does this allow students to earn an income while in school, it also creates new tax revenue for the economy. Each year, participants in the electrical training ALLIANCE programs pay in excess of six hundred million dollars in taxes. This is truly a model program as it takes little to nothing from the taxpayers while training some of the most productive workers in the world who thereby pay tremendous dollars to the country.
