In 2015, the Department of Labor solicited application for the American Apprenticeship Initiative. The initiative intended to be a catalyst in supporting a uniquely American Apprenticeship system that meets our country's economic and workforce needs. The electrical training ALLIANCE was awarded the federal grant to identify pre-apprentices and equip them for entry into new careers in high-paying occupations in the electrical industry.

The U.S. Department of Labor is the funding source for this Pre-Apprenticeship Program.

This program provides 220 hours of training that includes classroom instruction in academic, computer skills, and on-the-job training experiences. The Pre-Apprenticeship Program training will include introductory and orientation lessons, financial literacy training, safety training, and introductory job lessons. Pre-Apprentices will also be placed to work as a CW1 at $10.26 hr. plus benifits for a total package of $16.62. The grant will pay for the Pre-App work boots and hand tools needed for the OJT. Pre-App's will also recieve a stipend check every 3 to 4 weeks for attending class.

Our population is becoming increasingly diverse and we are facing a shortage of workers in our industry. Minorities, Women, Veterans, Spouses of Veterans, and Persons with disabilities have been historically under-represented within the electrical industry. The goal of this federally funded program is to address these unique needs of the American workforce and population.

The program will start September 2018 with the Pre-Apprentices attending school on Monday and Wednesday from 10 am until 3:30 pm.  After approximately 4 weeks of school, we will begin placing the Pre-App with one of our electrical contractors for on-the-job training. On-the-job training days will be Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays for normal work hours of that contractor. Sometimes overtime will be available. The Pre-App who completes the program will get Direct Entry in to our apprenticeship program and will be bumped up to apprentice pay which is currently $15.48 hr. plus benifits for a total package of $19.58.
