Local Unions Bring Power to SPC Students

St. Paul JATC logo | TEXT: Training Tomorrows Electricians today, Electrical apprenticeshipsThe Local Union 110, St. Paul JATC recently donated 24 National Electrical Code books for students starting this semester. At $91 per book, this is a cost savings of $2,184 for these students. However, their support of our Electrical Technology students goes well beyond this generous donation.

Each year, the JATC, IBEW, and NECA provide scholarships to individual students within the Electrical Technologies program. IBEW also donates to the Friends of Saint Paul College annually and sits on the Electrical Technology Program’s Advisory Board. And this extraordinary partnership is a solid fixture in place for future electrical technology students:

Saint Paul College has been a great partner over the years and has offered many amazing candidates for apprenticeships. We look forward to continued success for years to come!”
Tim Garcia, Training Director at St. Paul Electrical JATC – IBEW Local 110

The electrical trade offers gratifying careers with plenty of variety and room for advancement, but candidates must understand that construction includes working in hot, cold, muddy, and other challenging conditions. It may also involve working at heights or underground. Despite these challenges, it is an incredible career for those who enjoy the sense of accomplishment of working as a team to complete projects that can last a lifetime. Construction technology advances the demand for more vital skills and abilities while maintaining a safe working environment. Saint Paul College works closely with unions to ensure our students receive training with the most up-to-date technology and equipment available in the industry.

Beyond the skills learned in our program, students can participate in Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) special programs for journey-level electricians for IBEW or NECA. Union electricians can pursue scholarships and attend a 4-5 year program to learn the trade from master electricians while getting paid and walking away with an MN Electrical Journey worker license and NO student debt.
