Northern Nevada Electrical Training Center creates highly trained and skilled professionals. We work directly with The Electrical Training ALLIANCE to meet the competitive challenges of today’s global market economy.
In addition to receiving skill training on the job, each apprentice is provided with trade-related classroom training that produces competency and pride that lead to true craftsmanship. Quite often, local training committees provide special classes with hands-on training to support classroom lectures and discussions.
There are four specialty areas where you will find electrical workers.
