Due to the complexity of the ongoing situation with the Coronavirus, the following needs to take place to continue the apprenticeship process for all.

Please be aware that we are doing everything possible to protect the wellbeing of all the apprentices and members of IBEW Local 43 as well as continuing with the apprenticeship. So to do your part, you need to continue to complete your homework assignments as if you are still attending class in order for each of you to get academic credit.

If you do not complete the homework assignments then you will not receive this credit and could cause issues with delays in future raises and your graduation.

When we return we will be having the tests on each course (topic) of study and will work the craft certifications into the schedule.

Please continue to watch our website for updates as we move through this and when class will start again.

As of right now we are posting the homework assignments for the next 2 weeks per class year and the staff will monitor this homework week by week as if class is still going on.

We will continue to access the apprenticeship week by week and will have updates on the website. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact the training center.

Remember that this is your career.
