ABC NorCal’s state-approved electrician trainee program offers a combination virtual classroom learning with onsite, hands-on labs. This learning model allows students to work during the day and take their classes at night from the convenience of their home. It is also flexible, so students can determine the order and progression of their classes. WyoTech students who were part-way through their program can enroll and start with their most recent course.

ABC NorCal’s state-approved electrical apprenticeship program is a good fit for most WyoTech students who have some level of on-the-job experience. Individuals can test into the five-year program and be placed according to their level of skill and experience. Unlike the electrician trainee program, the electrical apprenticeship program combines both classroom and on-the-job training. And it is free to the student.

“ABC NorCal is dedicated to serving the construction community and has a long-standing commitment to excellence in training. We are happy to assist and support individuals who have chosen to pursue a career in construction,” said ABC NorCal President and CEO Michele Daugherty.

Individuals interested in the electrical apprenticeship program are encouraged to apply now in time for the busy summer construction season.
