WECA's Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship Program Now Serving Commercial Electrical Contractors and Their Apprentices in the Salt Lake City Area


This week is a historic week for WECA's Utah Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship Program and Salt Lake City-area training facility in Woods Cross! Monday was the first day of class for our inaugural cohort of first year, first semester Commercial Electrical apprentices at our brand-new, state-of-the-art training facility!

Don Black, Apprentice Training, IT, and Facilities Director, applauded Utah Apprenticeship Manager/Instructor Talon Pobuda for working tirelessly to get the facility and program ready, and also credited Carolyn Black, Lab and Facilities Technician, with preparing the training aids for the program and Christine Hall, Director of Operations, with making sure that the apprentices were ready to be successful in their new training and career. Countless other WECA staff were also instrumental in making the WECA Utah Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship Program and new training facility a reality, and appreciates all the support from founding Utah member Hunt Electric.

WECA is thrilled to educate and train the next generation of premier commercial electricians in the Beehive State, and looks forward to all that our apprentices will accomplish!
