Become An Apprentice

An apprenticeship in the electrical trades is the perfect way to start a rewarding career. Without going into massive amounts of debt, an apprenticeship program allows men and women to learn valuable career skills.

Apprenticeships provide a pathway to a middle-class lifestyle. The earn while you learn apprenticeship model means that as apprentices learn new skills, they are earning a livable wage and benefits such as full family medical insurance and retirement benefits.

Instead of taking on the financial burden of other career training programs or further education, consider an apprenticeship with the Electrical Trades Center.

Men or women, regardless of race, who want to apply to The Electrical Trades Center apprenticeship programs can do so online, in-person by stopping at the ETC and filling out an application or by calling 614-463-5282 for the application packet.
