Local Joint Apprenticeship Council is a joint effort between IBEW Local 303 and Niagara Peninsula Electrical Contractors Association to mentor and administer the apprenticeship program under their jurisdiction.
- An apprenticeship is a 3 party agreement between the employer, the apprentice and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU).
- The Local Joint Apprenticeship Council (LJAC) is recognized as an “employer of record” under the terms of the MTCU and deals with apprentices in the unionized electrical field only.
- The LJAC will sign a Training Agreement (as the employer of record) in cases of a transfer from another union local, during organization of a non-union company or through a pre-approved apprenticeship pool.
- In addition to the pool, contractors can submit their candidates for apprenticeship to the office of the LJAC for review of qualifications (education and safety training) and aptitude testing.
- The apprentice pool accepts applicants for testing when the existing pool is depleted of qualified candidates. Candidates are considered from the resumes submitted to the office.
- Resumes (meeting entrance qualifications) submitted to the office will be kept for 6 months. We also suggest that you send your resume to individual contractors for consideration.
- Attach your secondary and/or post secondary school transcripts to your resume along with a copy of additional training certificates. (health & safety or skills enhancement)
- To qualify for an apprenticeship within the NPECA/IBEW Local 303 program you must have a Grade 12 diploma with Grade 12 Technical Math and successfully pass the aptitude tests.
