Telecommunications Apprenticeship
Updated On: Nov 14, 2017



Telcom OJT 003.jpgApprentices in our four year Telecommunications Apprenticeship Program will obtain at least 8000 hours of on-the-job experience and at least 640 hours of related classroom training. Upon completion, the apprentice graduates to Installer Technician status and is fully qualified to perform the work of the trade.

A Telecommunications Installer Technician installs the network of low voltage cabling that is used for video, voice and data or other low voltage signaling.

While most installations are in buildings that are partially or fully enclosed to protect from sun, wind and rain; these installations are often installed before air conditioning, heat or permanent light fixtures have been installed in the buildings. Many jobs, however, are in existing buildings or offices; and some work may be outside under varying weather conditions.

Backbone voice and data cables are routed between the entrance facility, where communications signals enter a building: to equipment rooms and telephone rooms. Voice and data horizontal cables are routed between telephone rooms or equipment rooms and individual workstations throughout the building.

Equipment rooms often contain energized equipment such as hubs, file servers or telephone switches. These devices are configured and connected to the communications network that serves the building, and must not be interrupted as a result of work performed by unqualified workers or those only partially trained.

The Installer Technician installs voice and data outlets at workstations. In addition, they install punch down blocks and cross connects in telephone rooms. These may be wall mounted or rack mounted, and must be grouped and identified according to specific installation standards.

Whether the work is in new construction or in existing office or manufacturing space, the IBEW-NECA craftsman takes pride in the work he or she performs.

We train to TIA/EIA and other industry Standards. The NJATC also partners with the major manufacturers in the video, voice and data industry to assure training in the latest technologies including training for manufacturers warranted installs.

Many of the work processes of the Installer Technician are listed below. There are many systems that utilize low voltage video, voice or data signals.
