In 1941 the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) jointly formed the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC) to produce the best trained electrical workers in the country.
Local 236 and the Albany Chapter of NECA sponsor the Tri-City Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee. The Training Center is located at 428 Old Niskayuna Road, Latham, NY 12110. Please visit the Tri-City JATC website, http://www.tricityjatc.org, for apprenticeship application dates and qualifications. You can also look for our recruiters manning booths and setups at various job fairs throughout the Local 236 region.
The Apprenticeship Committee is also in charge of coordinating Journeyman upgrade classes including courses in instrumentation, welding, VDV, medium voltage splicing, photovoltaic and other aspects of the trade. In the future, as these courses are scheduled they will be announced on this website.
