Pacific Inside Electrical

MHCC partners with Pacific Inside Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) to offer an electrical apprenticeship program serving the Oregon Coast. We encourage anyone interested to apply! 

Your future as an inside electrician 

This apprenticeship leads to the general journeyman electrician license. Inside electricians can complete electrical installations. They can also work in construction, maintenance, repair, and service. Example projects range from single-family residences to state-of-the-art industrial plants. They install conduits and wire lighting, switches, converters, and computer systems. It’s exciting work that can range from working outdoors in the elements to working in clean rooms at hospitals and manufacturing plants. 

Requirements to earn your general journeyman electrician license 

The apprenticeship is a four- to five-year program. Apprentices must complete a minimum of 144 to 180 hours per year of related classroom training and at least 8,000 hours of on-the-job training. Journey level electricians must have a state license. Upon completion of the program, apprentices take the licensing exam through the Oregon Building Codes Division. Applicants must: 

  • Be at least 17 years old. (They must be 18 to begin the program.) 
  • Provide proof of high school graduation or a GED® equivalent. 
  • Complete at least one year of high school or post-high school algebra with at least a C grade. 

Apprenticeship committees may require additional qualifications.
