Overview of Program: The Alaska Joint Electrical Apprenticeship and Training Trust (AJEATT) are co-managed by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1547, and the Alaska Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). The statewide program offers classroom instruction and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training for the fields of Inside Wireman, Outside Lineman, Telecommunications, and Residential Electrician; during which they are paid a percentage of the current journeyman wage scale. The only cost to the apprentices during their time indentured in the program is books for their respective classes taught at the training facilities in both Anchorage and Fairbanks.
