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.
