For over twenty years, Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. has been committed to providing the best possible training and a solid career path for hard working men and women who participate in our in-house Apprenticeship Training Program. Our program, which is accredited by the National Center for Construction, Education and Research (NCCER), is offered at no cost to participants. The four-year curriculum encompasses all aspects of electrical theory and practical application, culminating in apprentices testing for and obtaining their journeyperson’s license.
Classroom and “hands-on” instruction takes place in the 17,500-sf training facility that is part of our company headquarters, and on-site at our regional offices throughout the Southeast. Beyond the classroom, apprentices benefit from on-the-job learning, where they earn a competitive wage while gaining practical field experience under the supervision of a licensed journeyperson.
At the conclusion of each school year, our apprentices gather for a friendly competition, in order to have their knowledge put to the test, working in cooperation with and opposition to their peers. Students leave the competition learning the value of hard work and mutual collaboration in order to achieve a set goal. Their experience working to complete predetermined tasks within a specified timeframe during the competition mirrors the daily assignments and problem-solving skills necessary for successful project completion.
Our team members join the Griffin Electric Apprenticeship Training Program from a variety of work and school backgrounds. As apprentices acquire more skills and knowledge, they may take on more responsibility and work their way up the career ladder. Those who are committed to consistent quality performance throughout their on-the-job training, and who are dedicated to solid academic achievement in their classroom instruction, are often recognized and rewarded for their accomplishments.
