State Fair Electrical Apprenticeship Contest
Each year students from the Charlotte Electrical JATC compete in the Electrical Apprenticeship Contest at the State Fair in Raleigh, NC. This contest shows the skills and abilities that these students have worked so hard to develop. 2/3 of the score is based on a hands-on project to show their neat workmanlike manner, accuracy of layout and installation, productivity, adherence to the National Electrical Code, Safety, and operation of energized system. The other 1/3 of their score is a written examination.
Competing in 2017 were Ryan Burt, Robert Harris, Brett Lovingood, Brett Owen, and Melissa Reyes, Joen Tranquilino, Garrett Erlandson.
