We are the leading publisher of education materials for the electrical industry. For over 70 years, we have been the only curriculum endorsed by the industry's largest labor organizations - the IBEW and NECA. With our instructor training resources, regionalized curriculum and advanced learning technologies, we bring a new level of education to the classroom and can train students better than any other curriculum available.
Electrical Training Alliance


The electrical training ALLIANCE (previously called NJATC) was created over 70 years ago as a joint training program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) aimed at training the best electrical workers the industry has to offer. Today, the electrical training ALLIANCE has developed into the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind, having trained over 350,000 apprentices to journeyman status through local affiliate programs.

A model program

Over the years, we have continually trained the best craftsperson in the industry without cost to the taxpayers. Students in the electrical training ALLIANCE training programs earn while they learn by doing apprenticeships. Not only does this allow students to earn an income while in school, it also creates new tax revenue for the economy. Each year, participants in the electrical training ALLIANCE programs pay in excess of six hundred million dollars in taxes. This is truly a model program as it takes little to nothing from the taxpayers while training some of the most productive workers in the world who thereby pay tremendous dollars to the country.

Together with IBEW and NECA

Advanced Technology

Blended Learning

The electrical training ALLIANCE reaches beyond the textbook, incorporating advanced technology in all aspects of training. Blended learning enables students to continue training remotely, bridging the gap between an apprenticeship and learning in the classroom. The electrical training ALLIANCE encourages training centers to embrace new technologies and offers ongoing technical courses to support all facilities using its curriculum. Since instructors and students can connect virtually, training on the go is easier than ever. Blended Learning also enhances the classroom time as Instructors can spend more time with hands-on instruction rather than going over homework.

Registration information and course schedules are easily found on our website. Check out the latest course catalog.

Instructor Resources

Many electrical training ALLIANCE instructors are experts in their field, but are new to teaching. With access to the world's largest electrician training library and experienced educators, instructors have a plethora of resources to help them organize and teach classes. We also offer technical courses and monthly webinars so all instructors can stay up-to-date with the latest technologies.

Our monthly webinars feature new curriculums and special presentations by our partners. These webinars keep instructors, contractors and students informed of current technologies, industry news and product information.

All instructors are encouraged to participate in The electrical training ALLIANCE's annual National Training Institute (NTI), an event offering ongoing training for new and experienced instructors.

Core Curriculum

Core Curriculum

Specialty trade skills mean nothing without a solid foundation of core skills. Our core curriculum allows students to specialize in their trade while still becoming well-rounded craftsperson. Every region requires different skills from electricians. Being an electrician in rural Indiana is not the same as being one in Las Vegas! Each state's certification exam is unique and qualifications for an electrician's license vary. The electrical training ALLIANCE provides the flexibility to train for these unique demands by offering core and advances studies. The core curriculum establishes the foundation of skills necessary to be an IBEW/NECA Journey-Level Worker. The Advanced Studies curriculum creates alternative training paths to customize your training centers' workforce to specific market demands the contractors and their customers demand.

To accommodate students and instructors, we have at least one training center in each state. Each of these training centers offers courses uniquely designed for the location. Find a training center near you. If needed, electrical training ALLIANCE can also notify your state licensing board of your course completion. Rush reporting is available for an additional fee.
