IBEW Local 569: Rigorous Training, Lifelong Learning

IBEW Local 569's members are highly trained professionals who receive ongoing training throughout their career. Local 569’s industry training is the best in the region in quality, education and technical expertise. Our Imperial County Electrical Training Center is the first construction trade apprenticeship facility in the county. Our San Diego Electrical Training Center is conveniently located near our union hall in Kearny Mesa.

Our curriculum is constantly upgraded to include the latest technological developments and our Instructors are the most qualified in the industry. Each one is either a direct graduate of our training program with several years of field experience or a professional engineer. Each apprentice who graduates to “Journeyman Wireman” status has logged over 11,000 hours of combined classroom and field experience and Journeyman Soundmen have logged over 6,400 hours. Journeymen are required to complete 18 training hours per year of continuing education at one of our Training Centers to stay ahead of emerging technologies in the marketplace.

Training expenses for each apprentice and Journeyman including tuition, instructor fees, curriculum development, facility fees, and equipment and overhead costs are covered by a scholarship through our Training Trust which is funded through our collective bargaining agreement with the San Diego Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association.
