The Electrical Training Alliance (formerly the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC)) is committed to providing an educated, well-trained workforce through the cooperation of both labor and management. Their goal is to help workers develop the skills, knowledge and ability needed to retain highly-paid jobs in the electrical field. The ETA is well known for its “Earn While You Learn” initiative that allows electrical apprentices to work and earn respectable living wages while receiving necessary related instructional training.
The NECA/IBEW Electrical Training Center provides several videos which address frequently asked questions one may have as they consider a career in the electrical construction industry.

Something we found interesting was, "Some 30 million jobs in the United States that pay an average of $55,000 per year don't require bachelor's degrees."
