Western Electrical Contractors Association (WECA)
Western Electrical Contractors Association, Inc. (WECA) is a statewide non-profit organization serving independent/merit shop electrical contractors, their employees and the industry suppliers that support them.
WECA offers apprenticeship, electrical (commercial and residential) and low voltage (voice data video and fire life safety) training, and continuing ed courses for journeymen. WECA’s Apprentices attend classes in an accelerated and intensive format consisting of full-time classroom and lab instruction for two consecutive weeks every six to seven months. Each two week session is equal to one semester. An apprentice’s tuition is paid for by a WECA Member Contractor that employs him or her, while the apprentice is responsible for purchasing their own books and tools. All three of WECA’s apprenticeship programs qualify for GI Bill benefits.
