Charlotte Electrical JATC is a Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee (JATC) program based on the electrical training ALLIANCE / National Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee (NJATC) curriculum and consists of:
· 900 classroom hours over five years of study, training and examinations; and
· 10,000 hours over five years of paid on-the-job training.
The Committee itself is made up of four representatives from Local Union 379 International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), and three representatives from the Atlantic Coast Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). All applicants who are selected into the apprenticeship program offered by the JATC are placed to work with signatory contractors of Local Union 379 IBEW. All apprentices in these training programs are required to complete on the job training hours, as well as classroom related instruction hours.
The JATC meets on a monthly basis to discuss and deal with the administrative issues of the various training programs. The JATC is funded by a negotiated contribution that each contractor pays per man-hour worked.
