I-TAP’s electrician courses prepare you to meet the educational requirements of an electrical trainee program in only six months!
Due to state and federal regulations, it is no longer possible for those interested in the electrical trade to simply get a job as an electrician trainee and work their way up. You must be enrolled in a certified apprenticeship or trainee program in order to work in the field.
Apprenticeship programs are typically 3 to 5 years in length. But at I-Tap, trainees receive the same learning experience and treatment as apprentices in only 6 months.
In just 6 short months, our trainee program will prepare you to take the California certification exam and be on your way to working as a journeyman electrician.
