Boston, MA Local 103 IBEW and NECA Greater Boston unveiled a new Joint Apprentice Training Center (JATC) following a transformative $10 million renovation. The upgraded facility features technology and expanded classrooms and will train thousands of union apprentices as the demand for clean energy grows.
“No one else trains apprentices like Local 103 IBEW does – no one has a $10 million annual training budget, three full-time administrators, 13 full-time teachers, 25 part-time teachers, and trains apprentices on the job for over 10,000 hours while providing 6,000 electricians with annual licensing updates,” said Local 103 IBEW business manager and financial secretary Lou Antonellis. “The Local 103 IBEW has brought apprenticeship training to levels never imagined. It will churn out a new generation of electrical workers, ready to take their place in the expanding clean energy sector.”
