Are you a high school graduate and looking for a new direction?

Do you have a job and are looking for a different career?

The Electrical Trades Center of Greater Stark County is a formal, structured, nationally recognized education and training program that enables men and women to secure positions in the electrical construction industry. The Canton Electrical JATC apprenticeship prepares participants with classroom instruction and extensive on-the-job training, supervised by a skilled journeyman. Tuition-free classroom training not only offers the tools to advance in a life-long career, but it also provides the opportunity to EARN WHILE YOU LEARN. As an apprentice advances and develops more complex skills and knowledge on the job, they are rewarded for their hard work.
