Become an Apprentice

Become an Apprentice

Don't have a college education or work experience?  Don't worry.  Neither are required to get started as an electician apprentice (althought having both would certainly help).  IBEW 804 through the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee of Central Ontario (JATC) provides opportunities for all our members to obtain on-the-job training combined with classroom instruction to further their careers within the Union.

The finest and most highly trained electrical workers in the country receive their training through local joint apprenticeship training committees utilizing the standardized education programs developed by the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the Electrical Industry, supporting both the National Electrical Contractors Associations (NECA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).

Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee of Central Ontario  (JATC)

Mission Statement:
"The IBEW Local 804 and the ECACO standardize training and recruit apprentices to become professional journeypersons. We ensure the construction industry has the best trained journeymen in Ontario. We intend to serve the electrical apprentices with integrity, honesty and reliability. The JATC will work closely with apprentices to ensure their success."

Conditions for apprentices indentured to the Joint Apprenticeship & Training Counsel (JATC) of the Electrical Contractors of Central Ontario (ECACO) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 804 can be found in the JATC Policy and Procedures.

It is a model eduction partnership which produces the best trained, most up-to-date electrical apprentices and journeymen in the country.  All of the $100 million annually spent is privately funded.

One of the great benefits of beoming an electrician apprentice is that you can earn while you learn and your salary will increase as your skills develop.

Attributes that are helpful in becoming an electrician apprentice include an aptitude for math, being handy with tools, having no fear of heights or tight spaces, good reading comprehension and having the ability to learn new skills easily.
