The Ventura County Electrical Apprenticeship Program is the training program for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 952, in conjunction with the Ventura Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association. Both the IBEW and the Local 952 chapter of the organization have deeply rooted histories in Ventura County and the United States.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers was founded in 1891 by a group of electricians who wanted a safer workplace, fair wages, and respect for the service they rendered through their labors. Since 1891, the IBEW has grown from a handful of pioneers to the largest electrical union in the world. The IBEW comprises working men and women in the electrical industry, committed to bettering themselves and the industry. IBEW Local Union 952 was founded in 1937 and continues to be the voice of the electrical construction industry in Ventura County.
The U.S. electrical contracting industry comprises over 70,000 electrical contracting firms employing over 650,000 electrical workers. In this massive and crucial industry, the IBEW and NECA ensure that workers are represented fairly and feel supported in their trade.
NECA members are electrical contractors who work in all aspects of electrical construction. While most qualify as small businesses, large, multi-area electrical contracting firms are also association members. NECA contractors set the standard for traditional and integrated electrical systems and lead the industry in the practical application of new technologies. NECA contractors employ IBEW Electrical Workers, the industry’s most highly trained and reliable workforce.
