Earn While You Learn with Building Omaha’s Electrician Apprenticeship Program

Does this sound familiar? You:

  •     Enjoy working with both your hands and your mind. 
  •     Welcome a change of scenery as opposed to being confined to a cubicle 40 hours a week. 
  •     Want a career that will provide for you and your family handsomely and not paycheck-to-paycheck.
  •     Like the idea of earning a salary while learning a skilled trade.


If any of the above describes you, then the Building Omaha electrician apprenticeship program is tailor made for you. 


Building Omaha’s electrician apprenticeship program is a nationally-renown education program that combines award-winning curriculum with hands-on learning opportunities taught by skilled, seasoned master electricians.  You’ll:

  •     Attend classes two evenings a week,
  •     Apply what you learn in class on job sites,
  •     Learn from licensed electricians who have been in your shoes,
  •     Earn a paycheck while you build skills and expertise,
  •     Choose your program length – 3-5 years, and
  •     Avoid student loans through our tuition funding program. 


The benefits of a rewarding electrical career are many:

  •     Great wages – $75,000-$100,000 average salary, including benefits,
  •     Generous benefits – 100%-funded health insurance for your entire family,
  •     Secure future – 100%-funded retirement pension, 
  •     Steady income – 40-hour work week with overtime options, and
  •     Continuous variety – opportunity to work on a range of jobs.


Plus, you determine what kind of career you’ll pursue as a licensed electrician. You can work as a residential wireman, primarily tackling jobs in single or multi-family units, both in new construction and existing homes. Or you can specialize in connecting commercial electrical systems to outside power sources as an inside wireman. Or you can work as an electrician in the low voltage field, installing cabling systems in the communications and entertainment sectors.
