Electrical Apprenticeship Courses

Electrical Apprenticeship Courses

Electrical apprenticeship program wiring a ceiling light.

EASTERN’s four year electrical apprenticeship programs are approved by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training so you know you’ll get the training you need.

Our programs provide the required 576 hours of theoretical instruction necessary to achieve journeyman status in the electrical trades. In addition to theory classes, 8,000 hours of on-the-job training must be provided by an  employer with a registered apprenticeship  program.

Apprentices register in September and attend classes two evenings a week. The courses run for 12 weeks during each of the fall and spring semesters.

Review the Department of Labor Occupational Outlook for Electricians.
