Tri-County Electrical Joint Apprenticeship
and Training Committee



The Tri-County Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) is a jointly administered program by the Monterey Bay California Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 234.

The JATC covers the jurisdiction of SantaCruz, San Benito, and Monterey County and is the only federally and state registered electrical apprenticeship program located in the Monterey Bay area.  The JATC administers a five year electrical apprenticeship program.  Indentured apprentices work for a signatory electrical contractor during the day earning a wage in addition to attending school in Castroville two nights a week.  The apprenticeship school year begins in September and completes in May.

The Tri-County Electrical JATC also provides continuing education for Journeymen Wiremen who work as Electricians in the Monterey Bay area.

Applications for the Inside apprenticeship program are accepted year-round on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9am to 11am and from 1pm to 4pm.  Applications must be made in person.  Click here for details.
