Safety, Health and Training

ElecComm is committed and focused on safety, health and training. Our employees continually go through annual learning certification and participate in the Apprenticeship Program.

Apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training (OJT) and related classroom instruction under the supervision of a journey-level craft person or trade professional in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation.

After completing an apprenticeship program, the worker's journey-level status provides an additional benefit of nationwide mobility at journey level scale.

Below is just a partial list of training programs our team attends:
