The most skilled electricians are taught at the training centers managed jointly by the International Brotherhood of Electricians and the National Electrical Contractors Association. IBEW electricians receive extensive training in learning their trade and participate in continuing education and certification classes, including the latest in technology and safety standards that keep each craftsperson at the top of their profession. It’s that committment to training which has enabled the completion of many high-tech, high-finish projects on-time and on-budget. Some of the more recent projects include Target Field, TCF Bank Stadium, Guthrie Theater, Walker Art Center, the conversion of the Riverside Power Plant, upgrades at the Monticello Nuclear Power Plant, University Bioscience Building, and the new 35W bridge.
IBEW professionals participate in hundreds of hours of training programs each year and apprentices have an impressive 95% first-time pass rate in achieving state licensure. We are proud of our role in training the skilled electrical craft worker of today and we are confident in the need for an even more highly skilled electrical worker in the future.
