On Saturday, June 3, the IBEW Local 26 Joint Electrical Apprenticeship and Training (JATC) Committee held a graduation for the Class of 2023. The event took place at the Martin’s Crosswinds Greenbelt and recognized inside wiremen, telecom, and upgrade categories graduates.
There were 206 graduates in the Inside Apprenticeship Program, three Telecommunication apprentices, and 69 Upgrade graduates. Hundreds of family members, friends, and colleagues gathered to celebrate each of their accomplishments.
“Everyone in the room understands the value of a Union Apprenticeship Program, from the wages, the benefits, the trade experience, to the knowledge base,” said NAME, TITLE. “It’s inspiring to see them come together from all their varied backgrounds and unite in making IBEW Local 26 the home of the best trained and most skilled electrical workers in the industry.”
If you or someone you know is looking for a rewarding career in the electrical trade, applications for the JATC are open year-round. You could be at one of the next graduation ceremonies, ready to celebrate a new path as a skilled craftsperson.
