Receive excellent wages and benefits with IBEW 743

Apprentices have the opportunity to earn while they learn, allowing them to learn the electrical trade, while receiving a livable wage and benefits. Apprentices are paid through a structured wage schedule, with pay increases throughout their apprenticeship. They also receive the same benefits as the other IBEW 743 members including comprehensive health coverage, prescription plan, eye and dental plan and excellent retirement benefits.

Limited or no costs for electrical training

With hundreds of thousands of dollars invested annually into our training program, through a joint effort by our contractors and our members, we equip apprentices with high-quality training to help them be successful as journeymen. The fund provides an industry-leading education, at little costs, to apprentices. Apprentices must pay a yearly tuition of $150, plus the cost of their school books. 

Safety certifications 

Working in the construction industry can be dangerous and working with electricity further increases the risk of danger. The IBEW 743/NECA Electrical Training Alliance is proud to offer our apprentices and journeymen industry-leading Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training to help keep them safe on the jobsite. OSHA safety training not only keeps electrical workers safe, but also ensures the safety of everyone else on the jobsite. Safety is part of our collective bargaining agreement (CBA), as we believe workplace safety is a right that should be afforded to every worker.
