IBEW 141 – Wheeling
International Brotherhood of Electricians Local 141 along with their contractor partners sponsor a five year apprenticeship program based in Wheeling.
Career fields include Inside Electrician, Telecommunications Technician and Residential Electrical.
Here is an overview from the web site of the National Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee.
Each type of electrical work shares common skills and knowledge. Each also has other skills and knowledge, which are specific to that particular area of work. Because of these differences, each type of work has a different apprenticeship program associated with it. Basic requirements for becoming an apprentice in any of the programs are similar, however. The following requirements are typical for individuals applying to be accepted into an IBEW/NECA Joint Apprenticeship Training Program (JATC) or IBEW/NECA Area Wide Joint Apprenticeship Program (AJATC).
- Minimum age 18
- High School Education
- One Year of High School Algebra
- Qualifying Score on an Aptitude Test
- Drug Free
Each local JATC or AJATC may have additional requirements and provides training for electrical workers in a specific geographical area. Applications must be made to the JATC or AJATC in the area where you reside.
