The Joint IBEW/NECA Electrical Apprenticeship Program - Safe and Reliable Workforce Critical to Successful Projects

We sent our crew out to talk to industry leaders about how regional business and civic leaders rely on having a highly trained skilled workforce ready to work on electrical projects.

Take a moment to watch to the quick interview below as F.A.C.T. Board Member Dick Caglia of Electric Motor Shop and Supply Co., discusses the importance of using skilled labor who have participated in the joint IBEW/NECA* Electrical Apprenticeship Program.

Mr. Caglia's long family history of success in the field provides a high level of insight into the critical significance of safety and training in the electrical industry, explaining "...you can trust that these fellows and ladies know what they're doing."
