Become an Apprentice

Earn While You Learn

The training center offers 3 NECA/IBEW Local 48 apprenticeship programs. Each program trains apprentices in a licensed craft and indentures them through the State of Oregon’s Apprenticeship Division. If you are interested in becoming a licensed Journeyman in the electrical industry please review the programs we offer to determine which is the right one for you.

Each of our 3 programs provides the apprentice with requirements needed to qualify for the Oregon State Journeyman license exam, and if applicable, its equivalent Washington Journeyman license exam. Our apprentices are prepared through classroom instruction and on-the-job training.

IBEW Local 48 has been around for over a century. Generally, most journeyman electricians and techs have heard of the IBEW and approximately half have chosen to become members. The rest of the electrical workforce has either not gotten the information they need to make a fair decision regarding membership or they have an ideological opposition of some sort. Either way, we are glad you are here to learn more. By standing together, we establish a bottom-line cost for the labor investments we make in the highly-profitable electrical contracting industry. The best part is that we don’t stand opposite our electrical contractors, we stand side-by-side and sign our agreements as partners. Please read on to learn more about how our organization can benefit you and your family.
