A-American Electric's Apprenticeship Program
We invest in our employees' success
We offer debt-free, state-approved apprenticeship training as our entry level.
Our career path system is comprised of six Electrician Levels, ranging from EL0 to EL5. Each level requires a certain degree of skill and experience, and thus pay that reflects those achievements.

At A-American Electric, we don't just hire you—we welcome you into our family. No matter your experience level, we want you to spend the rest of your career with us. And that's why we invest in every employee's success and well-being.
