If you’re a well-trained electrician, you’ll always have a job! Contact us about training!

Today’s business world is changing so quickly, and it’s difficult to keep up. They often say that children who are entering school today will have jobs that don’t currently exist when they graduate, and that’s not difficult to believe. But that doesn’t change the fact that the skilled trades continue to be practically recession-proof, and that is not likely to change anytime soon.

The Arkansas Construction Education Foundation was created in 1994 to provide top-quality training to meet the constant demand for contractors and craft professionals in Electrical, Plumbing, Carpentry, HVAC, Electronic Systems Technology, Building Maintenance, and Industrial Maintenance. We’re looking for hardworking, career-minded people who enjoy working with their both their hands and their heads, and offer a number of apprenticeships and training programs that will help you step confidently into today’s workforce!

If you’re interested in becoming an Apprentice Electrician, we offer a rigorous training program that will help you meet the licensure requirements of the Arkansas Department of Labor, Board of Electrical Examiners. Your Electrician Apprenticeship is a four-year program that includes 640 hours of classroom instruction at your choice of Electrical Training center, and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training in the field. Once you complete the program, you will be granted a “release to test,” and can submit an application to sit for the journeyman electrician’s exam.

At ACEF, our apprenticeship courses are certified by the U.S. Department of Labor, recognized by the Arkansas Department of Career Education, and accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research. We set everyone up for success with our innovative National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum, which contains both knowledge-based exams and a “hands-on” performance evaluation. This approach provides the student the opportunity to apply everything he or she has learned in both the classroom setting and on the job.

The great thing about all of our apprenticeships is that we get you trained on all of the safety standards for your field, and get you in the field right away. The demand for electricians continues to be at an all-time high, and when you start your training with ACEF, the question isn’t “will I have a job?,” but “how many hours can I work a week?”
