Apprenticeship: The Path to Becoming an Electrician

Get Paid While You Learn A Valuable Trade!

Our apprenticeship program is operated by the Dakotas Area Electrical Apprenticeship and Training Fund (i.e. Dakotas JATC).  If you’re interested in becoming an Electrician, the first step is to fill out an application.  The Dakotas JATC is operated as a partnership between the Dakotas IBEW Unions and the North and South Dakota N.E.C.A. Members.

Apprenticeship applicants must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Be able to legally work in the United States.
  • Provide official high school transcript(s) or GED and college or technical school transcripts, showing courses and grades.
  • Provide proof of one full year of high school algebra with a “C” or better or one semester of post-high school algebra with a “C” or better [or evidence of completion of the NJATC Tech Math course].
  • Submit a DD-214 to verify military training and/or experience if veteran status applies and you wish to receive consideration for such training/experience.
  • If you have previous electrical construction work experience, we will need verification of your hours from the contractor(s) in order to award previous experience credit.
  • Valid Identification

Documented experience in electrical construction will be considered for possible interview opportunities, advanced placement, and/or direct entry.

Once your application is complete you will be eligible for an online interview and placement in the
program. Learn while earning a paycheck and avoid going into debt thousands of dollars a year, justfor tuition!

Most applicants will also need to take, and pass, an aptitude test prior to the interview.

Once accepted/called to an Apprenticeship, you will be indentured into the program and your training will begin.  Complete details and requirements of the apprenticeship program are available from the Dakotas JATC or the Local 714 Offices.
