The American Electrical Training Center was formed in 2008 to address the training needs of the electrical industry in Arizona. Prior to its inception, electrical training was available only through union affiliations, local trade associations, or employer’s in-house programs. A few colleges and trade schools provided additional educational resources, but none offered formalized or custom training programs statewide.

The American Electrical Training Center is considered an open-shop or merit shop training provider; servicing the residential, commercial, and industrial electrical industry. No Trade Association or Union membership is required. Our unique approach to craft training, apprenticeship training, and internship training programs blends electrical craft training, “soft-skills” training, and leadership training; utilizing instructor-based and computer/internet-based training media.

Related training for apprenticeship programs are taught on a "fast-track" format. Students attend classes for 3-months, are off for 1-month, then resume another 3-month training session. Students will complete related training of a traditional 4-year apprenticeship program in 2-years and 7-months! Many of our students receive credit through local community colleges.

Now employers and students statewide can benefit from a state and federally approved apprenticeship program, whether they live in Page, Yuma, Sierra Vista, Lake Havasu City, Flagstaff, Apache Junction, or the greater Phoenix or Tucson area. We are able to set up customized electrical training programs where you work or live.

Distance Learning courses are now available for students living anywhere in the United States.
