Georgia Chapter operates the apprenticeship program in accordance with the US Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship Standards. The two main program requirements are: minimum of 576 hours of classroom training and 8,000 hours (up to 4 years) of on the job training (OJT). When both of these requirements are met a certification of Journeyperson Electrician is issued to the apprentice and they are offically recognized as an electrician in all 50 states.
The apprenticeship program is offered onsite in Columbus, Savannah, and Atlanta; as well as online (or distance learning) for those whom need to travel for work or are not closed enough to a physical location. Both of these programs receive journeyman certification.
