Our Apprenticeship program contains a five year schedule of classroom, hands-on and on-the-job training to satisfy the number of training hours (8,000) required to test for your Journeyman license with the state of Texas.    Throughout the five year program, you will work for one of our participating electrical contractors earning a percentage of the negotiated Journeyman wage.    Apprentices currently start out at $16.00/hour.    The current apprenticeship wage scale can be seen here.

Once you have completed the Apprenticeship program and obtained your state of Texas Journeyman license, you will have the opportunity to work for one of the signatory contractors as a journeyman electrician, with a starting wage of $32.00/hour.   The curriculum and training of the Apprenticeship program will prepare you for the opportunity to work as a foreman.   Foreman manage other journeymen, construction wiremen, construction electricians and apprentices.   Foreman wages start at $35.20/hour.

For those journeyman wishing to advance their careers further, they can test for their Master Electrician license, once they have an additional 4,000 hours of work hours as a Journeyman.
