Hi guys, I was just curious and wanted to know if any of y'all knew anything about the Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for Southern Nevada?

http://www.earnwhileyoulearn.org/index.asp

I was looking to move to Nevada and found this school, but I wanted to ask y'all if its pretty legitimate, or if there are some red flags that I'm missing.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

One more question for you guys.

The site says, "Beginning rate of pay for Electrical Wireman apprentices is 45% of Journeyman scale."

Roughly about how much is that? I just want to know if i'll need to find a part time job for the first year or so.

I don't know about Vegas, but in northern Nevada (Reno), apprentices usually start out at around $12/hr.

If you share an apartment with one other person, you can get by on $12/hr., but you won't have a lot of spending money.

Vegas is likely higher, but the cost of living is also higher.

Generally, as a 45%er, you will have all the work you need. You guys are in high demand. Once you turn out the best guys will carry on and the slackers will be hanging around the hall.

I don't know about Vegas, but in Reno there are basically two apprenticeship schools, the Union one (local 401) and the ABC (Associated Builders and Contractors) one.

Pay is a little less for the ABC one, but there's more non-Union work around here.
