Who we are
The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is the voice of the $130 billion industry responsible for bringing electrical power, renewable energy, efficient lighting and communication to buildings and communities across the United States. NECA is dedicated to enhancing the industry through innovative research, performance standards, progressive labor relations, and workforce recruiting and training.
NECA represents over 4,000 electrical contractors nationwide that employ the most highly trained electricians in the industry. These contractors are estimated to conduct about half of all the electrical work completed throughout the country.
The electrical training ALLIANCE is a specialized, privately funded, training program sponsored jointly by NECA and the IBEW, which includes 5 years of apprenticeship comprised of 8,000 on-the-job training hours. Most courses are accredited college courses that provide training across the entire electrical trade. Total schooling provides a minimum of 144 hours of classroom training per year. The Electrical Training ALLIANCE also holds a partnership with the University of Michigan to train our instructors annually. Once graduated, the graduates become instructors and also conduct work in the field. The ETA was created more than 70 years ago and today, it 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.
