Apprenticeship Opportunity

Our electrical apprenticeship is a 5-year program.
You will apprentice under a Journeyman Electrician while working for our Electrical Contractors during the day.
All apprentices must attend school 2 nights a week for 3 hours each night, at our Training Center located in Lorain.
The starting wage for a first-year apprentice is $14.80 

At the time of application, the applicant must meet all minimum requirements:

Each applicant MUST FURNISH ALL REQUESTED COPIES in order to complete the application process.

All documents submitted at the time of application become property of the Lorain JATC and will not be returned to the applicant.

Applicants are required to pay a $30 non-refundable Application Fee that is used to pay for their aptitude test.

Each applicant that meets all basic requirements, and provides the Committee with all the requested documents, will be contacted
at the beginning of the year to take an aptitude test.
All applicants passing the aptitude test with a predetermined score will be interviewed by the committee.
Interviews usually take place in the spring.
Each person interviewed will receive a ranking and be placed on the "Ranked List". 
Apprentices are then selected for the apprenticeship in the order of their ranking. 
Anyone not selected after 2 years on the “Ranked List” is removed.
