At Price Electric, we’re committed to helping you reach your potential. We believe in providing quality education, professional development and hiring individuals who exemplify our core values.
Electrify Your Career
From the buildings we occupy to the roads we drive on, skilled trades workers keep our communities running strong. One of the top factors in overall job satisfaction is the ability to apply your skills regularly. Our apprentices receive on-the-job training and can draw on this experience every day.
What is an electrical apprentice?
Apprentice electricians are aspiring electricians who go through a combination of on-the-job training and classroom instruction. They learn electrical safety, electrical theory, how to read blueprints and schematics, state and local electrical code, and more. Once our apprentices complete their classes and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training, they are eligible to take the state license journeyman’s exam.
Earn While You Learn
Institute (day) classes are held one week a month for three months in October-December/January or February-April. In addition to weekly online assignments.
During that time, you will be gaining 8,000 hours of on-the-job training. As an apprentice, you are paid on a progressive wage scale throughout your apprenticeship based on performance. Price Electric reviews each employee every six months. You will be given a merit increase in pay based on performance and level in the apprenticeship.
Once you complete your classes and 8,000 hours of OJT, you will be able to take the State License Journeyworker’s Exam.
As a Journeyworker, you are evaluated to see what your capabilities are of running projects and crews successfully. You could then move into the role of the Foreman.
Price Electric will contribute the following to Apprenticeship schooling:
100% of class fees for receiving an A
80% of class fees for receiving a B
50% of class fees for receiving a C
Our company is built on a framework of core values that includes building and growing relationships, being reliable and innovative, and celebrating each other’s personal and professional success.
