Who We Are?
Lake County JATC
The Lake County Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) is committed to providing an educated, well-trained workforce through the cooperation of both labor and management. Our goal is to help workers develop the skills, knowledge, and ability needed to retain highly paid jobs in the electrical construction industry. The Lake County JATC pledges to educate workers through supervised on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. In the apprenticeship, you literally EARN WHILE YOU LEARN. As you advance through your training, you receive regular pay increases. As you develop more complex job skills and improve your knowledge, you are rewarded for your hard work. You also LEARN BY DOING. A qualified journeyperson supervises your on-the-job training.
