Apprentices prepare for careers in the electrical trade.

Holliston, MA – For the fifth straight year, Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. participated in the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s National Apprenticeship Week. The annual federal initiative is an opportunity for businesses, communities, and educators to showcase their programs and support for apprenticeship.

Griffin Electric celebrated National Apprenticeship Week at each of its five office locations in Holliston, Mass.; Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte, N.C.; Pelham, Ala.; and Duluth, Ga.

Classroom and hands-on instruction takes place in dedicated training space

The company commenced the week with a series of raffles, giveaways, and a special luncheon for students during Saturday classes. Additionally, project foreman at each of Griffin’s over 200 active job sites treated their crew members to lunch during the week (which fell on November 11-17, 2019), in gratitude of their apprentices and the licensed electricians who help mentor them.

Griffin Electric’s free apprenticeship training program has prepared hundreds for rewarding careers in the electrical trade.

Throughout the school year, classroom and hands-on instruction takes place in the 27,500sf of dedicated training space that is part of Griffin’s headquarters in Holliston and on-site at each of the company’s regional offices.

In addition to 600 hours of classroom instruction, Griffin’s apprentices benefit from on-the-job learning, where they earn excellent wages and benefits while gaining 8,000 hours of practical field experience under the supervision of a licensed journeyperson.

Many Griffin apprentices and electricians grow with the company and even advance into foreperson, estimating, and project management positions.

for more than a quarter of a century. The program is accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and is designated as an approved training site by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
