About Us

The Tri-city Joint Apprenticeship Committee's (Tri-City JATC) five year electrical apprenticeship program was established in 1979. We are co-sponsored by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 236 and the National electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Albany Chapter.

The Electrical Training Alliance has developed uniform standards that are adopted and used nationwide by local programs to select and train thousands of men and women each year.

Tri-City JATC provides apprentices with tuition free classroom training and training assignments - Paid on the job training (earn while learn). In conjunction with our partners NECA and the IBEW apprentices receive excellent wages, paid health benefits, pension, guaranteed wage advancement, and a employment atmosphere with safe working conditions.
