I-TAP’s electrician trainee courses are designed to prepare you for a successful career as a commercial electrician.
To become a certified electrician in California, you must accumulate at least 8,000 hours of on-the-job experience. But while practical experience is important—that’s why we have the best hands-on lab anywhere—you also have to complete 720 hours of instruction and pass California’s certification test to become a journeyman electrician. I-TAP’s program has been designed from top to bottom to ensure that you can not only complete all of these requirements, but also attain the skills to start a successful, profitable career as a certified electrician.
Below, you will find information on our programs, and the subjects they cover, and the latest class schedule. If you have any questions, just contact us and let us know!

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.
