IBEW 141 – Wheeling

International Brotherhood of Electricians Local 141 along with their contractor partners sponsor a five year apprenticeship program based in Wheeling.
Career fields include Inside Electrician, Telecommunications Technician and Residential Electrical.
Here is an overview from the web site of the electrical training ALLIANCE.
Each type of electrical work shares common skills and knowledge. Each also has other skills and knowledge, which are specific to that particular area of work. Because of these differences, each type of work has a different apprenticeship program associated with it. Basic requirements for becoming an apprentice in any of the programs are similar, however. The following requirements are typical for individuals applying to be accepted into an IBEW/NECA Joint Apprenticeship Training Program (JATC) or IBEW/NECA Area Wide Joint Apprenticeship Program (AJATC).

Minimum age 18
High School Education
One Year of High School Algebra
Qualifying Score on an Aptitude Test
Drug Free

The Recruitment, selection, employment and training of apprentices shall be without discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin or sex.  The JATC will take affirmative action to provide equal opportunities in apprenticeship and training and will operate the apprenticeship program as required under Title 29 of the code of federal regulations, Part 30.
