OUR IN-HOUSE APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
E Light Electric’s comprehensive training programs are designed to better serve our customers by improving the education of our workforce. From our widely-recognized Apprenticeship program to continuing education and leadership classes, E Light’s training efforts have been enormously successful. To this we owe thanks to our training department’s dedication to new and innovative ways to approach education. Read more about our Director of Education and Loss Prevention here.
E Light is the only company in Colorado with a Department of Labor-certified electrical Apprenticeship training program in which Apprentices are trained at our facility. Our Apprentices complete 128 hours of class time per year of Apprenticeship. The classes include topics like safety, electrical trade, theory, leadership, productivity, efficiency and lean construction. The Apprentices are paid for their days in class as this is their job assignment for that day. This process allows us to provide an enhanced environment for learning.
By combining on-the- job experience with a structured classroom environment, this four-year program gives students the knowledge and skills to pass the Journeyman Electrician exam, become competent electricians and most importantly they are prepared to lead a team.
As a leader in Lean Construction principles, E Light’s training programs reflect efforts to reduce waste on our jobsites and increase value to our customers. Our training department also ensures that values such as safety, loss prevention, and customer satisfaction continue to be integral parts of our corporate culture. We also develop on line training modules for our employees and conduct on site leadership coaching on our projects.
