      T & D TODAY AND TOMORROW

      The NECA/IBEW team is well prepared to handle all of Arizona’s transmission and distribution needs. The team brings the skills required to confidently install the lines that move power from plants to factories, businesses and homes nationwide. Each member pursues this critical work with the knowledge that only comes from years of training and experience. 

      Whether building new lines, rebuilding existing ones or providing immediate restoration assistance in times of disaster, the work of the NECA/IBEW team is meticulously completed safely and efficiently.  Their work becomes even more crucial as the demand for electricity steadily grows, as an aging infrastructure needs rebuilding and as renewable power generation sources, such as wind and solar, grow, requiring a greater transmission and distribution investment.  The NECA/IBEW team assures you that the investment is well spent.


      Local 769 utilizes The Southwestern Line Constructors Apprenticeship and knowledgable Journeyman Lineman for the training of our apprentices.  The Southwestern Line Constructors Joint Apprenticeship and Training Program was created to provide quality apprenticeship and training programs for the Outside Electrical Construction Industry. Their focus is clear and unwavering: they are committed to producing the industry's finest craftsmen, and have met employers training needs for nearly a half century. This program covers the states of Arizona, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

      Interested apprenticeship applicants should visit their website at www.swlcat.org
