Did you know that women make up 9% of the Commercial Electrical Apprentices in our AZ Program?

Wednesday, September 29, 2021

Will you--or someone you know--join them?

Want to read a gratifying statistic? Women make up 9 percent of the Commercial Electrical Apprentices enrolled in our Arizona program at WECA's Phoenix training facility--more than the national average!

There are myriad reasons why pursuing a Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship through WECA Arizona is a good idea, but we think Laura Varela (pictured above) sums it up best!

Per her spotlight, Varela says that "The major perks of an Apprenticeship with WECA, rather than a traditional college education, would be the cost. Apprenticeship tuition is paid for by the employing contractor; the phrase 'earn while you learn is a big part of the Apprenticeship program."

Indeed--having tuition paid for by your employing contractor is the biggest perk of a WECA Apprenticeship program. That allows you to build your career and earn while you learn, while graduating with no debt!
