Default IBEW Classifications

How many electrician classifications does the IBEW recognise? I am aware of the apprentrice, journeyman, foreman, general foerman. There are also specialities such as welders, high voltage but, is there such a thing as a master in the IBEW?

I have never heard of "master", doesn't exist as far as I know. There is: JIT, journeyman in training, pre-apprentice, summer helper, material handler, PE, pending examination, instrument tech, sound and communication and there is probably a few more.

Don't know but from the looks of the list, they might just make up a new one for them. They seem to have one for just about everything else

Spanish speaking does not mean Mexican always. Spanish is the most spoken language through out the world, Chinese is the most spoken language in one country of the world. Around here it Hondurans.
