WHAT IS APPRENTICESHIP?
The Shreveport JATC provides the ultimate "earn while you learn" apprenticeship training program. As an apprentice, you will be assigned to one of our electrical contractors, earning a progressively increasing hourly wage (plus benefits) as you successfully gain more skills and technical knowledge in the electrical industry.
This is a rigorous five-year in-depth post-secondary electrical training program. Apprentices are provided on-the-job training during the day and attend class two nights per week to learn the required electrical concepts, theories, and applications necessary to develop apprentices into top performing journey workers and professional union members.
Upon graduation, apprentices become full-fledged journey workers and earn nationally recognized certifications that make them eligible to work out of any local IBEW union across the country.
The Shreveport JATC accepts applications year-round. On the job training starts middle of June, and classes start every August. It is a competitive application process, so we encourage all applicants to take advantage of the information and resources provided here to maximize your chances of being accepted into the program.
