HIGHSCHOOL PRE-APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMS WE'RE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
ETAJAX Pre-Apprenticeship Classes are being taught in the following area high schools:
The Construction Wireman and Construction Electrician program, also known as the CWCE program, is designed to provide experienced Electrical Workers with pathways into the IBEW/NECA (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and National Electrical Contractors Association) organization by providing competitive pay and benefits based on documented and evaluated experience and knowledge/skill levels.
The Registered Pre- Apprenticeship Program is a partnership with several high schools around Jacksonville and the surrounding counties.
Our Pre-Apprenticeship program gives High School Seniors the opportunity to complete their full 1st year of curriculum at their High School. Upon completion, these students will have the opportunity to direct place into the 2nd year of Apprenticeship.
Is a competency‐based approach, involving successful demonstration of acquired skills and knowledge by an apprentice, as verified by the program sponsor, with an on‐the‐job learning component and related technical instruction (RTI).
STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math -
Our Apprenticeship program focuses on the theory based application of electricity and the science behind it. Our students learn how to calculate conductor resistance, electron flow, voltage drop, and other variables that affect electrical installations. All of these factors have a math based component that the student uses to solve complex electrical calculations. Another element of the science of electrical problem solving is the use of technology in the form of high-tech digital meters to test, read and record ampacity, voltage and resistance.
The hybrid approach requires the apprentice to complete a specified minimum number of on‐the‐job‐learning hours and related technical instruction (RTI) hours to demonstrate competency in the defined subject areas.
Hybrid applicants can enter the electrical apprenticeship program on an accelerated schedule due to their prior training and experience.
