Holliston, MA – Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric) announced it recently recognized the apprentices and instructors of its in-house Apprenticeship Training Program.
With the week of Nov. 13-17 marking the U.S. Department of Labor’s National Apprenticeship Week, Griffin Electric demonstrated its appreciation for the apprentices and instructors during classes throughout each of its regions on Nov. 11. Instructors and apprentices were each given a shirt and gift, while the company also provided food trucks and raffled off a series of prizes throughout the day.
Celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, Griffin Electric’s training program also reached a significant milestone of 30 years in 2023. The four-year program is accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and features a combination of classroom instruction and on-the-job learning. Griffin apprentices work on the company’s more than 250 active job sites throughout the year. Throughout the Apprenticeship Training Program school year, classroom and hands-on instruction takes place in the 27,500sf of dedicated training space that is part of the company’s headquarters in Holliston, and on-site at each of its regional offices in Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte, N.C.; Pelham, Ala.; and Doraville, Ga.
Representatives of the company say that apprentices who go through Griffin Electric’s program are well prepared to achieve their licensure and transition into electrician and telecom technician roles. And while apprenticeship is where the path of training and education begins at Griffin, continual learning is emphasized at every level and there are always opportunities to learn new skills and grow with the company. Team members who are dedicated and possess a willingness to take on greater challenges have opportunities to advance in various capacities and leadership roles, such as foreperson, estimating, and project management positions.
