Tuesday, October 20, 2020   WECA San Diego Moves; Now Co-Located w/ Associated General Contractors of San Diego

WECA has been successfully co-located with Associated General Contractors San Diego (AGCSD) at their Riverside Training Facility for the past decade, and the partnership has proven beneficial to our members, apprentices, and students alike. When AGC approached WECA’s Board of Directors with a proposal that WECA move to share their facility space in San Diego as well (their newly-built headquarters in San Diego opens this year), the win-win was evident.

Terry Seabury, CEO of WECA, explains “We’ve been outgrowing our previous San Diego training facility at 9320 Hazard Way, which we established back in 2002, due to the significantly increased number of Apprentices, Electrician Trainees and Journeyperson continuing education students taking classes from us in San Diego in the intervening years.  When AGC San Diego leadership invited us to consider sharing space in either their new location, or their existing Ferris Square location, we were excited to explore our options. We ultimately chose a large portion of the Ferris Square location as the best suited for our San Diego training facility expansion. Our Board of Directors and Apprenticeship and Training Trustees were happy to expand our co-location agreements with such a great organization—especially one like AGCSD which shares our commitment and passion for providing member services that help our contractor members to be successful in their businesses, as well as providing to them the most well-trained industry employees in the state.”

“Our partnership with WECA will enhance training for craft workers in each Apprenticeship program, and expand other benefits for members of either Association.  Working together, AGC and WECA have the unique opportunity to have 10 different craft trades train in close coordination— a scenario much closer to real-world job conditions than stand-alone training. WECAs track record in apprenticeship curriculum development and AGCs long history of continuing education complement one another to provide exceptional training at all stages of construction careers,” says Eddie Sprecco, CEO of AGC San Diego.

Bob Bartlett, WECA Director of Membership , adds that “WECA’s decision to co-locate with AGC San Diego is a strategic plus. With the new facility and lab space nearly doubling, WECA members can rest assured that the apprentices they enroll in the program will be excited to attend classes in a state-of-the-art training center. AGCSD has fun events and we are looking forward to co-sponsoring membership meetings which will give WECA’s electrical contractor members the opportunity to rub elbows with the Generals.  Quality space…Quality education…and Quality benefits…all coupled with a Quality Partnership can only lead to increased successes and opportunities for everyone involved.” 

From the training and curriculum perspective, the opportunities seem boundless. Don Black, Director of Apprenticeship Training, IT and Facilities, explains that “The move to Ferris Square really gives our instructors an opportunity to leverage the additional hands-on lab space in support of our curriculum and student success. The instructors are excited to have two large open lab spaces where they can spread out the lab activities to enhance the student experience. Additionally, the classroom spaces are comfortable and an excellent environment for learning.  Our new location will serve WECA and our students for many years to come.” Tom Thompson, WECA Curriculum Development Manager, adds that “Our Low Voltage program in San Diego will benefit quickly from the expanded space, as the curriculum team is excited to further develop the hands-on labs on our current low voltage systems competencies, and also build new competencies around the addition of “data rooms” (not only in San Diego, but also in Rancho Cordova) that will very closely simulate what students will be installing on a real job site!” WECA’s GetWired! Electrician Trainee Certificate Program is likewise excited over the expanded lab space. Michelle Gilkey, Director of Marketing, Learning and Product for WECA, explains that “We are continuously finding ways to accommodate the ever-growing number of trainees we serve with our GetWired! hybrid online program, and this additional space will allow us to run more concurrent Saturday labs than ever before in San Diego.”

You can now find WECA’s San Diego training facility at 6212 Ferris Square, San Diego, CA 92121. When in-person classes resume, apprentices, trainees, and journeyperson continuing education students will all be able to enjoy learning in these new and expanded facilities.

WECA is grateful for this opportunity to train alongside AGC in San Diego, and looks forward to many years of working side-by-side to train the future workforce.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020   Congratulations to the WECA Graduating Class of 2020!

Grad Week Spotlights: Meet Northern California Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship Valedictorian Adam Weiper, Southern California Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship Valedictorian Michael Finner, and Southern California Electrician Trainee Graduate Nathan Price
 

 

 
 
WECA Northern California Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship
Valedictorian Adam Weiper (left) and WECA Southern California Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship Valedictorian Michael Finner (right)
At WECA, we’re proud of being a pivotal part of graduates’ lives. It’s an honor to work with our Member Contractors to provide students with exemplary in-the-classroom education and on-the-job training to succeed and forge careers.
That’s why when we hear stories like Adam Weiper’s (2020 Northern California Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship Valedictorian), Michael Finner’s (2020 Southern California Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship Valedictorian) and Nathan Price’s (2020 Southern California Electrician Trainee program graduate), we are humbled to have helped change students’ lives and provide them with an education and life experience that’ll stay with them long after they have walked our halls.

We are always proud of our graduates, but especially so in an unprecedented year like 2020. You did not let this year define nor mar the end of your educational experience, and you did not let this year define or radically alter your chosen industry. Instead, you rose to the occasion and met any challenge head-on, as always. You are the backbone of your communities, and power California with your hard work, determination, and tenacity. Graduates like you make the construction and electrical industries especially resilient. We salute you and look forward to your collective future endeavors. Congratulations!

But before you go, take a moment to read inspiring sentiments and musings from some of your fellow graduates—2020 Northern California Apprenticeship graduate and Valedictorian Adam Weiper, 2020 Southern California Apprenticeship graduate and Valedictorian Michael Finner, and 2020 Southern California Electrician Trainee graduate Nathan Price.
Adam Weiper

Adam Weiper, 2020 Northern California Commercial Apprenticeship graduate and Valedictorian, started out as an Electrician Trainee with Reyff Electric, Inc. in 2013. But owner Ray Reyff quickly realized Weiper’s potential and began sponsoring Weiper’s Commercial Electrical Apprenticeship. And the rest is history—Weiper has been with Reyff ever since—an experience he says “has allowed me to grow exponentially and gain more knowledge.”

And with WECA, Weiper says that although the experience was “sometimes difficult and overwhelming,” instructors always helped Weiper and his fellow students grasp and understand concepts no matter what—even if it meant staying after hours to help—something that Weiper doesn’t take for granted.

“WECA gave me the tools and knowledge to be able to succeed on the jobsite. I was truly blessed to be around not only great instructors, but also great mentors, which set me up for success and set me on a path to train future generations with the same enthusiasm. We watched you all [instructors] grow with us…Zack, you always showed respect to each student and truly cared that we succeeded. Jimmie, you are a wealth of knowledge and you always allow yourself to be open to questions and phone calls—to this day, you still answer questions from former students, because you love sharing that knowledge and helping everyone succeed. And LaKeal, you excelled at keeping the class engaged even through some less than exciting but necessary things—a commendable feat,” says Weiper.

Looking back, Weiper wants current and future students alike to know that “your path may be close to being finished, or perhaps it is just beginning. You have all made the decision to dedicate years to gaining as much knowledge as you can. Use this time to ask questions, and for help if a problem arises. You control your success in the program, which will set you up for success in your career as you continue to learn.”

Now that he has graduated, Weiper says his future is “open to so many possibilities.” He plans to continue working for Reyff Electric “because it has been nothing but positive growth over the years, and Ray’s commitment and investment into me was not a waste by any stretch of the imagination.”
Michael Finner

After leaving the military in 2013 with “no exit plan and no college education”, Finner decided to use some of his GI Bill to attend an Electrician Trainee program and get his foot in the door. Finner initially attended Wyotech in Fremont, CA and got a year of job experience under his belt, which enabled him to be hired by Bergelectric—whom he still works for today—and indentured into his Commercial Apprenticeship with WECA in 2015.

“Everything began to fall into place then,” says Finner. “Wyotech used the same books as WECA, but WECA was superior in explaining the material we covered in class, and the labs were more organized and challenging.” Finner continues, stating that “completing my education through WECA has opened up a lot of doors for me. I’m not just an electrician…I am also a certified journeyman that has completed a state-approved apprenticeship program”.

“The last five years gave me the opportunity to work with many different types of materials and tools, and with lots of different people,” says Finner. “Knowing how to work with difficult people is sometimes as important as knowing your trade”.

Finner says that “my wife and children [contributed to my success at WECA and in my career]…I struggled a lot during my Apprenticeship with whether or not I wanted to continue with the program. Every time I prayed about it or discussed it with my family and friends, the answer remained the same, so I was on the right path.”

And Finner says to current and future students: “If you chose this Apprenticeship over a college education, you made a wise decision. You will seriously doubt it at times, but if you can grind it out and finish the Apprenticeship, you’ll have an education and a skillset you can take anywhere in the world. If they [do end up] wanting a college education, they will be able to afford it after completing the Apprenticeship without going into massive amounts of student loan debt.”

Finner continued, thanking Maria (his wife) “for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself”, “Mr. Ranger Rick, thanks for everything you taught us…and for the donuts”, and “Dom, Jon, Devon, and Sean for making me work harder. Without you guys, I don’t know that I’d be in this spotlight”.
Nathan Price

Nathan Price began WECA’s Electrician Trainee program in 2014—but his path was slightly different than that of other Electrician Trainees in that he has not ever worked for a WECA Member Contractor, since there are are't many close to where he lives, in Orange County.

But Price—like most other Electrician Trainees—financed a significant portion of his education by convincing his non-WECA Member Contractor employer to pay for some of his program! After achieving this, Price’s progress in the Electrician Trainee program accelerated, and he also took self-paced courses online during this time to increase his knowledge of electronics and the burgeoning solar energy industry.

“WECA has changed my life,” says Price. “It’s allowed me to become self-sufficient, have a skill that is and will always be in high demand, purchase my first home, and aspire to a bright future”. 

Price continued, saying that “WECA prepared me for my career by giving me a thorough understanding of electrical fundamentals, trade practices, electrical code, troubleshooting, and general skills. And [I give a shout-out to instructors] Jimmie Slemp, Andre Lewis, Tom Thompson and Talon Pobuda for really going out of their way to encourage students and make sure that students understand the principles that are being taught”.

And what a career he’s enjoyed so far. Throughout Price’s career so far—one year in residential electrical, three and a half years in commercial electrical, and one and a half years in the industrial and research side of the electrical industry, he’s participated in the development of a neutron therapy machine for cancer, a large-scale fusion reactor, and some small-scale electric vehicle research—all of which require extensive knowledge of controls, instrumentation, and voltages. Currently, Price is working on an installation in China where he supervises and inspects the work of local electricians to ensure the quality, reliability, safety, and troubleshooting of the electrical systems on the first neutron therapy machine to be installed in a hospital.

Price says that he wouldn’t have gotten to where he is without his on-the-job training—which taught him how to be a good electrician, run a business, and other invaluable life lessons—nor without his dedication to consistent quality and hard work, which also helped him to succeed at WECA.

“Being dedicated to my studies and wanting to learn anything I can while at work, and asking questions and not shying away from extra work [helped me excel],” says Price.

Price implores future and current students to take their education seriously, study, and be devoted to their work.

“Do the best work you can, and pay attention to the details,” says Price.

And even though Price has graduated from WECA and secured work on interesting and innovative projects both stateside and abroad, he’s still committed to continuing his education and continuing to further expand his knowledge.

  • Your lab will be conducted entirely online.
  • Your lab date will remain identical. Your lab time may shift from afternoon to morning, or vice versa. Please watch your email for further details.
  • WECA will send you confirmation of your login instructions for your online lab.
For those students interested in Classroom-based Two Day Exam Prep, these classes have been cancelled until further notice. However, our Live Online Two Day Exam Prep class is available for enrollment. It's the same curriculum; just delivered in an online classroom instead.
  • WECA has cancelled all classroom-based Two Day Exam Prep class instances until further notice.
  • WECA's Live Online Two Day Exam Prep is now available on a monthly basis. Scheduled over two subsequent Saturdays, a live instructor leads students through our popular Two Day Exam Prep course experience over Zoom in this 16 hour class.
  • You may prefer to take an upcoming GetWired 404 Test Prep instance. GetWired 404 is also entirely online and instructor-led, but delves even more deeply into preparation for the State certification exam over 42 hours.
  • WECA's new 24-Hour Self-Paced Online Exam Prep for the General or Residential Certification exams is an option, too, for students who want to study on their ow schedule.
For those students interested in Basic Motor Controls, these classes have been cancelled until further notice.
  • WECA has cancelled all classroom-based Basic Motor Controls classes through the end of 2020. 
  • You may take an alternate online course to fulfill this requirement towards your ET Program Certificate. Call WECA to discuss your options.
  • You can wait until WECA can resume offering the classroom Basic Motor Controls class and take it on a future date, but as of now, no dates are scheduled.
WECA has suspended sales of its DVD/Textbook-based home study courses. All online home study courses will remain available.

Certification Testing:
  • As of May 1, 2020, PSI has reopened several of its testing sites across California for limited testing. WECA has personally checked with PSI testing centers in both Sacramento and San Diego and each reports that they are currently open, practicing social distancing, and only allowing a certain amount of people in the building at a time. Keep in mind as you schedule your exam appointment that available windows may be limited, so if you're ready to take the exam, don't delay in securing your appointment. In addition, the State of California confirms that it is actively processing certification applications.
The situation around COVID-19 continues to evolve and WECA's delivery plans are subject to further modifications based upon subsequent guidance from authorities. We're glad to be able to deliver our regularly-scheduled online classes without interruption. Please follow WECA's communications closely and watch our website COVID-19 Advisory Page for further updates, as we will do our best to rapidly communicate any further changes to you. Thank you for your patience and solidarity as we all work together to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our community.
