    In the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers we pride ourselves on having the best training program in the entire electrical industry. We have two programs in which you can choose from the Apprenticeship Program and the CE/CW Program. 

    An apprentice is defined as one who contracts with an apprenticeship sponsor. The apprentice and the sponsor agree and commit to specific responsibilities. In general, the apprentice agrees to work on the job to learn the skills associated with the trade. The apprentice is paid a reduced rate of journey level pay while learning and developing job skills and acquiring trade knowledge. The more established and quality apprentice training programs also require related classroom studies where in the apprentice learns the science and mysteries of the trade as they train to become a complete craft worker-a true professional.

    The Construction Wireman Construction Electrician (CE/CW) program sometimes offers employment opportunities for those waiting to make application and compete for the apprenticeship program. The program may also offer employment for those interested in the trade but unable to qualify for or waiting to qualify for the apprenticeship program. It may also be an excellent program for those already employed in the electrical construction trade but interested in seeing what other opportunities might be available.

         The CE/CW program is not a dead-end program. It is designed to provide a pathway to Journey-Level status for those willing to complete minimal-training, mostly through study sessions and hands-on training given at Asheville's JATC location and the Forest City location.
