Joint Apprentice Committee of the Electrical Industry - Local Union 3


The Joint Apprentice Committee of the Electrical Industry - Local Union 3, an NCCRS member since 1979, trains young men and women to become journeymen electricians. These inside wiremen are responsible for the installation of all types of electrical systems in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings throughout the New York City area. Formal training classes for apprentices were first started by Local 3 in 1921. Local 3 adopted the National Standards in 1941, and in 1943 the training program was registered with the New York State Department of Labor. In 1977, Local 3 began using the material contained in the National Electrical Course for Apprentice Inside Wiremen as the basis for the first four years of their five-year Apprentice Training Program. This course has been developed by the Electrical Training Alliance (formerly National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the Electrical Industry) which is jointly sponsored by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (I.B.E.W.) and the National Electrical Contractors Association, Inc. (NECA).

Students and admissions representatives please note: NCCRS does not provide transcripts. Transcript requests and inquiries should be directed to the organization offering the courses, examinations or apprenticeship. See the Source of Official Student Records in the sidebar near the top right side of this page.
