Outstanding Apprentice Graduate Group

The OA Group is for Outstanding Apprentice Graduates, Entry Level Employees, or individuals that have been identified as a future leader within your organization.  This 40-hour program runs Sunday through Friday and features team building, leadership development, estimating, negotiations and the structure of the IBEW/NECA.

We encourage you to check-in and receive your registration packet on Saturday, July 28th at the Trade Show.  At this time your instructors, Jay Jones, Gary Buresh and David Woodard will review information with you to assist you with your NTI Training. 

(6) nights of Lodging ($636.06) for your OA Graduate at North Quad is included in their NTI Fee.  The fee is $106.01 per night.  If your OA Graduate needs additional nights, a charge of $106.01 per night will be invoiced to you.  Should your OA Graduate need less than 6 nights, you will still be charged for 6 nights of lodging.

It is encouraged that your OA Graduate house with the other OA Graduates.  If you find it necessary that your OA Graduate stay with the rest of your group that is also fine.  We will still need to know their arrival/departure dates and the hotel they are staying.  You will be refunded the 6 night lodging fee of $636.06.

Lodging arrangements must be made no later than July 1st with Denise Jenkins by phone at (301) 715-2344 or djenkins@electricaltrainingalliance.org.

Should any JATC that would like to register their Outstanding Apprentice Graduate for a Technical Group (T Group) and/or Instructor Group (I Group) may do so and these individuals will still be recognized at the Sunday Opening Ceremony. Please contact Tim Strickland at 301-715-2347 or tims@electricaltrainingalliance.org to make these arrangements.


ALL Outstanding Apprentices will be required to wear a Dress Shirt, Tie, Khakis and Dress Shoes on Sunday evening during the Opening Ceremony. Female participants should plan to wear dress slacks and a blouse or skirt and blouse.  If they do not meet this requirement, they will NOT be permitted to participate in the Sunday Opening Ceremony.
