National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the Electrical Industry
The National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the Electrical Industry (NJATC) was created in 1941 and has developed into what perhaps is the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind. Local programs affiliated with the NJATC have trained over 350,000 apprentices to journeyman status without cost to the taxpayers. This joint program between the National Electrical Contractors Association and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers has clearly demonstrated the most cost effective way to train qualified craft workers.
Those in National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the Electrical Industry (NJATC) training programs are not a burden to the taxpayers for they are earning while they are learning. Each year, participants in the NJATC programs pay in excess of six hundred million 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 tremendous dollars to the country. Skill, knowledge and attitude are the main focus in all of the NJATC's training programs.
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.
