Please note:


Dependable transportation is a must for training and employment in the electrical industry. An electrical worker is responsible for reporting to his/her job site, which might be more than 50 miles away, often by 7:00 am. Public transportation is almost never adequate. Given the hours and location of the pre-apprenticeship program’s related classroom instruction and on-the-job training, public transportation may fail to get you to and from home to job site, to class and back home.
