Delivering the best trained electricians in the electrical construction industry.

Phone: (315) 782-1675

Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (EJATC) of Watertown is a five year electrical apprenticeship program.


We are co-sponsored by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 910 (IBEW 910) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Northern New York Chapter (NNY NECA). The apprentice combines on-the-job work experience with classroom training. The classroom training takes place 1 day/wk. Apprentices in both our Plattsburgh and Watertown programs would be assigned to one of our local electrical contractors (click here to see who LU 910 contractors are). As you learn by doing, you are also paid directly by the contractor with whom you are employed. In this process, you receive guaranteed promotions and pay raises, in addition to learning a new trade. As you develop more complex job skills and improve your knowledge, you are rewarded for your hard work.


The best part of all...there's no cost for the training!! Apprentices completing this program have no loans to repay.   You are simply responsible to pay for the books required to complete the program.

Tuition-Free Classroom Training

the class work, you will also receive pay increases.

The pay structure for our apprentices is based on a six (6) period system.  Our first year students start out as first period apprentices. After 1000 hours of on-the-job (OJT) training, and satisfactory progress in the classroom, you would then move up to the second period (or second year). After the successful completion of your first year classroom training and 2000 OJT hours, you would move up again to third period
