DEVELOPING THE HIGHEST QUALITY ELECTRICAL WORKERS IN THE BATON ROUGE REGION
The Baton Rouge Area Electrical Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (BREJATC) was created nearly 75 years ago as a joint training program between the Baton Rouge Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union 995, aimed at training the best electrical workers the industry has to offer.
The BREJATC is part of the largest apprenticeship and training organization of its kind in the United States, the Electrical Training Alliance (ETA), which has trained over 350,000 apprentices to journey worker status through local affiliate programs throughout the country.
Over the years, we have continually trained the best electricians in the industry without cost to the taxpayers. BREJATC students in our training program earn while they learn by doing apprenticeships. Not only does this allow students to earn an income while in school, it also creates new tax revenue for the economy. Each year, participants in our program pay thousands of dollars in taxes to support our community. This is truly a model program as it takes little to nothing from the taxpayers while training some of the most productive workers in the world who contribute to our economy.
Our apprenticeship program is approved and registered with the State of Louisiana and the U.S. Department of Labor. We are also affiliated with the Baton Rouge Community College, so our apprentices are automatically enrolled with BRCC through their Continuing Education program.
Are you looking for a rewarding career as an electrician, but can't afford to go to school full time because you need an income and benefits, or community college tuition is too expensive? Then you've come to the right place! More
