School Information

In December, 2005, the JATC purchased their own building on NE 42nd Avenue in Portland.  We now have the ability to provide all classes, lab shops, and administrative offices and support in one location.

The Area 1 Inside Electrical JATC is a state certified apprenticeship and training program for the non-union inside electrician.  Our program is a four-year education and training program.  At the end of four years, our apprentices graduate from our program with over 576 hours of classroom instruction and 8,000 field hours.

School is one night a week for four hours with additional lab classes scheduled on alternate nights, September through June.  Students are responsible for tuition and books.  All classes are held at the JATC Training Center.  Classes are progressive.  You must start at the beginning of the school year.  No late entrees are allowed.



All instructors require #2 pencils, TI-30 Calculators (provided to 1st year students in class), a notebook, colored pencils, and an ink pen.
The required JATC notebook for the 4th year class will be available in the office. Please call for availability.

Books are required.  Please check the information for your class year for required books.  Your instructor may require additional books not listed on this list.


Women and Minorities are strongly encouraged to apply
