Electrical Apprenticeship

Electrical Apprenticeship

The electrical apprenticeship classroom training is designed to provide the necessary courses required to become a state licensed Journeyman Electrician. The class work is designed to coincide with regular work experience. Two courses per year are offered over a four year period. Once an individual starts, an apprentice license must be obtained through the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing ( Once obtained, one can then continue attending courses, work the required hours, and complete the state examinations. Upon completion of coursework and the necessary hours of employment experience an individual can sit for the state journeyman electrician licensing exam.


Training Partnership

Electrical apprenticeship training is a partnership between local employers and UBATC. The employer provides the on-the-job training experience and UBATC provides the classroom instruction. The National Electrical Code (NEC) is used extensively. The class is divided into two eighty {80} hour sessions beginning in September and ending in December, then beginning again in January and ending in April.

Electricians are responsible for the safe installation and maintenance of electrical wiring. Electricians are one of the first trades to work on a new building and one of the last trades needed to complete the job. Levels 1A–4A taught first semester. Levels 1B–4B taught second semester
