Atlanta Electrical Training Center Provides Apprenticeship Model for Nation, a Feature of "Industry Today" on Industrialinfo.com

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2013) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Across the U.S., 285 joint apprenticeship training centers (JATCs) provide top-of-the-line training to up-and-coming electricians and linemen that are part of the NECA-IBEW workforce. 

When the NECA contractors of the Atlanta Electrical Contractors Association wanted to ensure that the local workforce was the best around, they raised funds to construct the Atlanta Electrical Training Center, designed to house as many electrical products as possible in order to train apprentices on the many different types of wiring, fixtures and control systems present in today's marketplace.

"Our employees become better electricians because of this training center. That allows our employers to provide a better value product to their customers," says David Sokolow, executive vice president for the Atlanta Electrical Contractors Association.

In this edition of "Industry Today," learn how the Atlanta Electrical Training Center and the JATCs throughout the country are turning out a confident, well-prepared group of electrical workers who are at the top of their game.
