Tell Me About The Training
What is Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship combines on-the-job and classroom training which prepares the apprentice for a career as a skilled craftsman. Apprentices work during the day for contractors (employers), who pay the apprentice directly for time worked. Apprentices may be sent to work anywhere in Santa Barbara County.
The NJATC Inside Wireman apprenticeship is a 5-year program. Apprentices attend school two nights per week during the spring and fall semesters.
Is This a State Approved Apprenticeship Program?
Yes. You will be registered as an apprentice with the California Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) and will comply with the requirements of Assembly Bill (AB) 931. For more information on The DAS, use the following link: http://www.dir.ca.gov/das/das.html
