Our Program:

The Inland Empire Electrical Training Center (IEETC) is a joint Labor-Management training program and is a collaborative effort of the IBEW Local union's #440 & #477 and the Southern Sierras Chapter National Electrical Contractors Association.

In 1945, the IBEW and NECA established the National Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (NJATC) by developing standards that are used nationwide to train thousands of men and women for demanding and rewarding careers in the electrical industry.

Our electrical apprenticeship programs offer an individual the opportunity to "Earn While You Learn"- where you are paid to learn and gain work experience under the supervision of a qualified journeyperson.

Education and Work Experience

The Inside Wireman apprenticeship program consists of five years of classroom-related study and 8,000 hours paid on-the-job training. The Sound & Telecommunications apprenticeship program consists of 3 years of classroom-related study and 4,800 hours paid on-the-job training. Each apprentice will attend a minimum of 180 hours of classroom training each curriculum year. The classes are held at the IEETC facility. The classroom-related study, coupled with OJT hours, is a time-proven method of graduating a skilled and competent Journeyman Electrician or Sound Installer.
