Who we are
The Redwood Empire Electrical JATC is a Joint Apprenticeship Training Center Located in downtown Santa Rosa. We have been providing training to Apprentices and Journeyman for over 60 years. We are the only union electrical apprenticeship in the North Bay. We assign apprentices to training assignments anywhere from the north end of the Golden Gate brige to the Oregon border. We cover six counties. Marin, Sonoma, Lake , Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte. Our apprentices are trained over a wide range of work practices preparing them for a career anywhere in the IBEW. The IBEW covers all 50 states, Canada, Panama, and Guam.
The Redwood Empire Joint Apprentice Training Committee is a joint venture between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). The Electrical Training alliance (previously called the NJATC) was created over 70 years ago as a joint program between the IBEW and NECA, aimed at training the best electrical workers the industry has to offer. Today the Electrical Training Alliance has developed into the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind, having trained over 350,000 apprentices to Journeyman status through local affiliate progams such as the Redwood Empire JATC.
Over the years we here at the Redwood Empire elctrical Training Center have continually trained some of the finest craftspersons in the industry. Students in our program earn a livable wage while they train under state certified electricians. We are partners with the Santa Rosa Junior College, and our apprentices earn college credits while in our program that they can later use towards achieving an Associates Degree with NO COLLEGE DEBT upon graduation. Our apprentices also have medical, dental, and vision benefits for themselves and their entire families. Our apprentices also start earning pension contributions after their first 1,000 hours of on the job training.
Our program is very competitive and very selective. We are looking for career minded individuals with a strong work ethic as well as mechanical skills and math proficiency. This program is open to all applicants that meet the requirements.
