An electrical apprenticeship is an occupational training program that combines on-the-job experience with classroom instruction in electrical theory, code and application designed to meet government and/or industry regulations.
Casper College provides formalized training for the electrical apprenticeship programs shown below.
Independent electrical apprenticeship
Independent electrical apprenticeship training is provided for electricians by Casper College. The classes are scheduled in an evening format and meet the state requirements and content for electrical training based upon the State of Wyoming Department of Fire Prevention and Electrical Safety standards.
These classes are offered on either a yearly or biyearly basis.
Wyoming Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Council
Casper College partners with the Wyoming Electrical Joint Apprentice Training Council (JATC) to provide extensive classroom training (60 credit hours) designed to complement on-the-job training received by electrical apprentices. Classes meet several times a year for a week at a time over the 4-year apprenticeship program duration. The combination of coursework and training prepare an apprentice electrician to take the journeyman electrician exam administered by the State of Wyoming Department of Fire Prevention and Electrical Safety.
These classes are offered on a yearly basis for apprentices working under the direction of the Wyoming Electrical JATC.
