About the CSEJATC

The CSEJATC has developed into what is perhaps the largest apprenticeship and training program in Colorado Springs, CO. The CSEJATC has trained apprentices to journeyman status without cost to the taxpayers. This joint program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has clearly demonstrated the most cost effective way to train qualified craft workers.

Those in CSEJATC training programs are not a burden to the taxpayers for they are earning while they are learning. Each year, participants in the CSEJATC programs pay thousands of dollars in taxes. This is truly a model program as it takes little to nothing from the taxpayers while training some of the most productive workers in the world who thereby pay their dollars to the country. Skill, Knowledge and Attitude are the main focus in all of the CSEJATC training programs.

Our Mission

The mission of the Colorado Springs Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee is to develop, train and educate the members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the National Electrical Contractors Association; insuring and providing the Electrical Construction Industry with the most highly trained and highly skilled workforce possible.


The CSEJATC uses standards that are adopted and used nationwide to select and train literally hundreds of qualified men and women in the Colorado Springs area. Through the CSEJATC, the IBEW and NECA have programs offering apprenticeship and training in the following areas:

  • Journeyman Lineman
  • Journeyman Tree Trimmer
  • Journeyman Inside Wireman

Our goal?

Produce and keep current highly qualified personnel

In order to be competitive in today’s market we must train. Training does not end at the completion of the apprenticeship program. It needs to be on going part of your career.

Why is training important?

Customers require qualified workers.  In order to acquire and maintain work both the contractor and worker need training.

Specialized training is becoming a condition for employment. Current examples are – OSHA 10- hour safety training, NFPA 70E, CPR/ First Aid certification and a State electrical license are required for employment on many jobs. In the near future NICET Certification for Fire Alarm work on military and private work will be required. In addition knowledge of PLC’s and other computer-aided skills will be customer/contractor/worker required.

Don’t get left behind – keep yourself employable, maintain and improve your skill sets Through Journeyman upgrade training.

Rising insurance costs force contractors to require higher-training standards for their workers.

Contractors and workers need each other. Training is a Win-Win proposition for both the contractor and the worker. Journeyman Upgrade Training is offered at no cost to you. This benefit is for you and the contractor collectively. Training does not end at the completion of the apprenticeship program. It needs to be on going part of your career. Look at the cost of college and technical schools, you can’t beat this offer.

Our affiliation with the National joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC) helps us meet training needs with “Just-In-Time” and “Train-The-Trainer” classes. This association is a tremendous help in keeping our personnel current with new technologies.
