In the era of the “Electrification of Everything,” the IBEW/NECA partnership is an indispensable resource to business, civic and residential living in the St. Louis area and eastern Missouri.
It advances initiatives that fortify the electrical and communications technology industry and the communities IBEW/NECA serves, including:
Investing more than $3 million annually in training the workforce of the future. Since founding its IBEW/NECA Electrical Industry Training Center more than 80 years ago, the IBEW/NECA partnership has trained more electricians/communication technicians than any other program in Missouri.
Pioneering new training and continuing education programs to keep pace with ever advancing electrical/communication needs. This includes the nation’s foundational Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Training Program (EVITP) that supports the growing EV market. It also constantly updates curriculum to support advanced manufacturing, data centers, healthcare, higher education, residential, renewable energy, traditional forms of energy and more.
Actively recruiting a diverse workforce to power the future.
