The ABC Electrical Apprenticeship is part of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) national construction trade association, with 70 chapters and 21,000 members nationwide. The Associated Builders and Contractors Institute’s (ABCI) Electrical Apprenticeship Program is an approved training program with the Construction Industry Licensing Board in the State of Florida. The electrical apprenticeship is career education combining extensive on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. In most apprenticeships, the program spans four years. During this time the electrician apprentice works under the supervision and guidance of a licensed electrician. The ABCI electrical apprenticeship classes are held at night so apprentices can work full time and earn a wage while in school. ABC apprentices must receive a minimum of 144 hours of classroom instruction each year.
