The IBEW Local 164 Training Academy is a state-of-the-art facility, located in a 40,000-square-foot, two-story building adjacent to our headquarters. It offers easy access to the Garden State Parkway, NJ Routes 17 and 4, allowing for quick and direct transportation via car. (Get directions)
The Academy boasts 12 large classrooms and 10 labs, including two state-of-the-art computer labs with a full complement of the most modern equipment. This includes the latest electrical, instrumentation, local operating network and "voice-data-video" equipment, all of which is central to the experiments and troubleshooting exercises that make up typical classwork-related studies.
The Training Academy also has a library of the latest printed materials, along with educational information available via a variety of media, including films, videos, and online training and content. Our center also boasts a 10,000-square-foot auditorium, available for student assemblies and large seminars. These facilities provide an excellent setting for the advancement of the program's objectives.
The program itself is a national standardized training program, with course materials periodically reviewed, updated and revised by the Electrical Training Alliance which serves as our National JATC. Our goal is to ensure that all students keep up with the latest technology advances, ensuring their ability to meet long-term career objectives!
College Credit: Local 164's electrical and telecommunications programs are recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE), and graduates earn college credit after completion! As of early 2004, electricians earn 60 semester hours of college credit recommendations from the ACE, while telecommunications technicians earn 37 semester hours. We also currently have an articulation agreement with Hudson County Community College which provides 22 credits toward a Construction Management degree upon completion of our 5-year Inside Electrical Apprenticeship. Thereafter, students may further their education by transferring these credits into degree programs offered by two- or four-year institutions.
