Workforce development for the electrical industry is a powerful mission for educators. Effective workforce development means that electricians are working competently and safely in a career that has the potential to provide them with financial security, and the public with functional, energy-saving, safe electrical systems. It is in this spirit that Independent Electrical Contractors Chesapeake, (IECC), Western Electrical Contractors Association, Inc. (WECA), and Cengage Learning joined together to develop a manual and educational guidelines for pre-apprenticeship programs that can make a contribution to workforce development.
Pre-apprenticeship programs are not for everyone. But in many cases, this type of program has the potential to set students up for success by enabling them to make more informed decisions about whether their capabilities and interests are a match with a career as an electrician, and to set them up for success by providing a solid foundation in core knowledge and skill sets related to a career in the electrical industry.
There is often confusion around what role pre-apprenticeship programs can play in the workforce development arena and about what learning objectives should be accomplished in this course of study. The goal of this publication is to clear up confusion on the roles that preapprentice ship programs can play and to provide guidance for implementation of an effective program when the need for pre-apprenticeship is evidenced.
Because the book’s subject matter experts, Keith Chitwood and Jim Deal, have over 69 years of combined experience in the field and/or as instructors, it is clear that this book was designed “by electricians for electricians.”1 The structure of this book is intended to be user friendly, and the tone is designed to be down-to-earth with regard to factoring in the real world of working in the electrical industry. Program administrators, instructors, and students will be the judges of how effectively the goal is accomplished and how well these intentions are communicated.
