The IBEW and NECA have come together to form the Charlotte JATC. This committee governs the Apprenticeship and all training for the IBEW. Our Apprenticeship program is a 5 year program that goes to school one night a week for four hours and you work during the day. The Charlotte JATC takes applications from January to April of every year, and that first year class is selected in August to begin school. If you have missed the cut off date to apply for the Apprenticeship, you may still apply for the CE/CW program and begin working today. Then in January, apply for the Apprenticeship and, if selected, you would change classifications to Apprentice One.
