Training & Safety
Through our Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee, the IBEW provides only the highest-quality skills & safety education and training programs available for its apprentices and member electricians and linemen – at no cost to them!
“Data … show that completion rates for apprentices in programs sponsored jointly by employers and unions were higher than those for programs sponsored by employers alone … a 17 percentage point difference.”
