The REJATC receives about 300 applicants every year for our electrical training programs. It is a highly selective process, as we're only able to accept around 15 to 30 new apprentices each year. Since we're investing roughly $50,000 toward your education and future success, we're looking for the best possible candidates. For those who demonstrate exceptional aptitude, integrity, motivation, and work ethic, the REJATC offers training and employment toward an accredited Associate Degree and a dignified, lifelong career in the electrical industry.
The Electrical Training Alliance is a nonprofit organization established in 1941 by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). The mission is to develop and standardize educational opportunities for members of IBEW-NECA, thereby providing the electrical construction industry with the most highly trained workforce in the world.
Based in downtown Santa Rosa, IBEW Local 551 and its Redwood Empire Electrical Training Center serve Northern California communities from "the Golden Gate to Oregon State." The region includes Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, and Sonoma counties.
