National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the Electrical Industry
The National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the Electrical Industry (NJATC) is headquartered in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The Executive Director, appointed by the NJATC Executive Committee, administers the program, and the national office is responsible for curriculum development, production, and distribution. Additionally, the NJATC develops national standards, operational procedures, and curriculum for local implementation. Workshops are conducted by the NJATC on a national, regional, and local level to ensure that national policies and curricula are understood, implemented, and properly utilized. Additionally, the NJATC conducts an annual training institute, which is presented at a major university specializing in educator development. This full week of college-level professional training is dedicated to the development of instructional skills, technological awareness, curriculum enhancement and a superior educational system. The Institute is designed to be an accumulative four-year educational experience for all instructors teaching in the NJATC's programs. To accomplish this mission, the Institute maintains a full-time staff comprised of curriculum specialists, technical writers, clerical and secretarial professionals, and other personnel.
The five-year inside apprenticeship program consists of a course of study designed to instruct the student in electrical theory, design, installation, and maintenance of electrical systems providing power, light, heat, air conditioning, refrigeration, control, communication, monitoring, and automation to residential, commercial, and industrial markets.
