The Inland Empire Electrical Training Center (IEETC) provides a qualified and highly skilled workforce in the electrical and telecommunication industry. The Training Center is a partnership between the Southern Sierras Chapter of NECA and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Locals #440 and #477. The finest electrical workers in the Inland Empire receive their training at the Training Center. It’s a model educational partnership which produces the best-trained, most up-to-date apprentices and journeymen in the country.


The electrical training ALLIANCE (previously called NJATC) was created over 70 years ago as a joint training program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) aimed at training the best electrical workers the industry has to offer. Today, the electrical training ALLIANCE has developed into the largest apprenticeship and training program of its kind, having trained over 350,000 apprentices to journeyman status through local affiliate programs.


Over the years, we have continually trained the best craftsperson in the industry without cost to the taxpayers. Students in the electrical training ALLIANCE training programs earn while they learn by doing apprenticeships. Not only does this allow students to earn an income while in school, it also creates new tax revenue for the economy. Each year, participants in the electrical training ALLIANCE programs pay in excess of six hundred million dollars in taxes. This is truly a model program as it takes little to nothing from the taxpayers while training some of the most productive workers in the world who thereby pay tremendous dollars to the country.
