Welcome to NECA-IBEW Electrical Training Center


There has never been a better time to prepare for a career that is financially rewarding and personally satisfying. And there has never been a better training program than the nationally acclaimed NECA/IBEW Local 48 Electrical Apprenticeship Training Program. Our apprentices learn from the most-respected and experienced instructors in the nation’s most technologically advanced facility. The result is that we produce the most skilled and productive electricians in the nation.

The annual NECA convention and trade show was again a huge success and the NIETC could not have been able to take better advantage than they did in 2017. Sending a bus of almost 50 apprentices and 6 instructors, they were able to bring the NECA experience back to Portland.

In addition to seeing the latest and greatest in technology, tools and materials, but also creating new partnerships with manufacturers and vendors in every facet of the industry. Additional resources were procured and relationships created to enhance the ever changing apprenticeship experience. 
Apprentices will be seeing the impact first hand as they encounter new tools from Milwaukee and Flir, new technologic from Trimble and plan grid, and continued support from Klein and Greenlee.
The NIETC is excited for the event to circle back around to our area so we can again expose so many apprentices to the much bigger world of the electrical industry as seen through the eyes of a contractor.


A free information orientation is held the third Tuesday of every month at 4:00pm. Pre-registration is not required. If you have attended an orientation in the past, we suggested you attend the orientation again, as information and policies may have changed.
