Important NEJATC Info

Nashville Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee's (NEJATC) goal is to provide the highest quality training to those interested in a career in the various fields within the electrical industry. In addition to receiving paid on-the-job training, our apprentices are provided trade related classroom training that produces competency and pride that leads to true craftsmanship. We provide hands-on training to support classroom lectures and discussions. Become a Student

The finest electrical workers in the Middle Tennessee Area receive their training through the NEJATC which is sponsored by the East Tennessee Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union # 429.

Knowledge, Skill and Attitude are the main focus in all of the NJATC's training programs. Our National JATC (NJATC) has developed into, perhaps, the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind. Local programs affiliated with the NJATC have trained over 300,000 apprentices to journeyman status in almost 60 years. This joint program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has clearly demonstrated the most cost effective way to train qualified craft workers.
