    Construction Wireman / Construction Electrician
    Jun 14, 2018
    The Construction Wireman program is a four-year entry level program that consists of five levels.  A placement test will be given if an applicant has prior verifiable experience, by way of check stubs, W-2s, tax forms, or a letter from previous contractors.  Starting pay for a CW-1 is $12.25 per hour on the check.  Pay increases as you advance up to the level of CW-5.  The pay for a CW-5 is $19.25 per hour on the check.  Advancement is achieved by: completing the required coursework; working the required number of hours; and taking a test to show skill improvement.  At any time, a person may choose to stay at their current pay period. After completing all five levels, you may enter into the Construction Electrician program.
    The Construction Electrician program is a three-year program intended for electrical workers with more than 8000 hours (about four years) of verifiable experience. A placement test will be given when the applicant has provided verifiable experience, by way of check stubs, W-2s, tax forms, or a letter from previous contractors. The starting pay for a CE-1 is $22.75.  Pay increases with advancement and can reach up to $28.00 per hour on the check.  Once the person receives a Journeymen’s license from the States of Nebraska and Iowa, and successfully completes the final test of the Craft Certification, the Construction Electrician will become eligible for Journeyman Wireman status in IBEW Local 22.

    The Omaha Joint Electrical Apprenticeship & Training Committee is accepting applications year round for the Construction Electrician/Construction Wireman program. Applications can be filled out on all working Mondays and Tuesdays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.; Applications are taken at the Apprenticeship Office, (8960 L Street, Suite 200, Omaha, NE).

    • Must show proof of high school graduation or GED.  
    • Applicants will receive a physical examination form that must be completed before the applicant can be sent to a contractor.
    The CW/CE Program is simply another path for a person to join our ranks. This makes it possible for an individual who is unable to complete an apprenticeship for any reason to still gain and maintain employment and education in the electrical construction industry. This program permits the participant to advance at their own pace and still be a proud member of the best team in the world.
    This program is also designed to assist those who have been trapped into “helper” type programs where they are locked in by others. Advancement in this program is NOT an employer’s decision. It is not the decision of the Local Union or the Apprenticeship Training Office. Growth and advancement rests clearly with the participant and is limited only by the individual’s personal desires, initiative, and ability. If you are motivated, you will progress and you will succeed. No more excuses from employers about not making the profit goals, or putting off your review for another 60 days. If you achieve the goals, you will advance to the next pay-grade. You will make more money.
    It is up to you to take advantage of this program and gain the skills and knowledge you need to be successful. By becoming more skilled and advancing your training, you help us all to become more marketable and more employable.
