The Central Valley Joint Apprenticeship Training Center

The Central Valley Joint Apprenticeship Training Center is a jointly sponsored organization of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association of Northern California (NorCal NECA). The purpose of the CVJATC is to educate & train our students to enable them to perform at a high level in the electrical industry.

Apprentices in our program have the opportunity to train on-the-job and periodically come to class and learn the “how’s” & “why’s” of electricity and the electrical field. The program is a comprehensive five year program designed to expose and educate the students about the industry both with textbook course material and hands-on lab exercises. Further hands-on training is obtained while working on the job.

The electrical field is constantly evolving, and as a result, the CVJATC must evolve with it. Along with the apprenticeship training, there are continued education courses offered to the journeyman members of IBEW Local 684. These courses are designed to keep the members up-to-date on new issues as well as to help maintain the standard of quality and craftsmanship the IBEW is known for. For additional information on these courses, click on the ‘Events Calendar’ under the ‘Member Resources’ header.

First Place - Western States Electrical Contest '13 Champion

The Central Valley JATC is proud to announce that Daniel Byrne won the first place overall award at the 2013 Western States Electrical Contest! Daniel is a recent graduate from the Central Valley JATC and was chosen to represent the CVJATC, his classmates and IBEW Local # 684 down in San Diego, California. There were 20 contestants who represented JATCs and IBEW Locals from California, Alaska, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Utah & Montana.

This contest was an all-day event that tested the Attitude, Skills and Knowledge of those who participated. The events were based on many subjects that had been studied and learned through a nationally standardized, comprehensive five-year apprenticeship program. Each contestant (and their respective classmates) received this training at their respective JATC. The seven events were: 1) Motor Control Drawing; 2) Motor Control Hands-On; 3) Written Test; 4) Material Identification; 5) Residential Wiring Hands-On; 6) ½” EMT Conduit Bending Hands-On; 7) ¾” EMT Conduit Bending Hands-On.

Daniel is the thirteenth  contestant to represent the CVJATC at this event, as only one participates from any JATC each year. Daniel is the eighth CVJATC contestant to place in an event, whether it be an individual event or an overall award, and the fifth to place first overall.
