Electrical Apprenticeship

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.

What are the features of Casper’s program?

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.
