Program Description

To be eligible for this program, you must be an apprentice or journeyman electrician in a state-approved program, such as the Syracuse Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee for the electrical industry. This is a state-recognized committee jointly sponsored by the electrical industry and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Local No. 43. To enroll, you will need a letter from IBEW Local No. 43 or from your employer (where the state-approved program is available), confirming your status as an apprentice or journeyman.

It should be noted that the program is a registered associate degree program rather than one which provides trade electrician training. Those interested in becoming electricians should contact the IBEW Local No. 43 at (315) 422-0435 or (315) 488-1388.

Those who complete the Onondaga program will be awarded the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree as well as the opportunity to transfer credits toward a bachelor's degree at a four-year institution such as the SUNY Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome, and the Oswego Department of Vocational Education.
