|Is an Electrical career right for you?|
Unlike non-union apprenticeships, IBEW locals and their ECAO contractors work together to provide apprentices with a positive experience. We support apprentices with:
NextGen clubs within the locals provide additional support and friendship for the younger workforce. They are organized and run by members under the age of 35.

Is an Electrical Career Right for You?
Electricians do complex, difficult work in all kinds of environmental conditions. Our construction and maintenance electricians can work in the freezing cold of winter and the stifling heat of summer. Our powerline technicians venture out into storms any time of day or night to repair downed power lines.
An electrical career is as rewarding as it is challenging. We constantly hear from our members that they enjoy “it’s something different every day” and that they feel immense pride in a job well done. Electricians drive by the hospitals, schools, or power plants they’ve worked on and think, “I helped build that!”
