ETAK acknowledges 17 Apprentice graduates, now LU 760 Journeymen.
All graduates passed the five levels of the NECB Craft Certification Exam.
Frank Piatt, NECA Field Representative, presented special remarks at the event.
Dr. Lewis and Dr. Williams of Pellissippi State Community College presented certificates and noted the graduates had earned 45 semester hours of credit toward an Associate Degree. Approximately 150 former IBEW Apprentices are studying to complete a degree. They also announced Reconnect Now, a program where the graduates and former graduates can register, tuition free, to complete their degree.
Milwaukee Tool presented each graduate with a 25 foot tape and a 6 in 1 tool. Klein Tools presented a tool set to the top three graduates: Jeremy Maples, Cassius Minefield and Randall Wright.
IBEW 760 Business Manager, Tim Tate, and East TN Chapter NECA Executive Director, Chase Pendergraft, each spoke and presented a gift to the Outstanding Apprentice, Randall Wright. Randall was also presented a meter from Ideal Industries and a quality power tool from Milwaukee Tool.
Congratulations to the Graduates and thanks to our Contractors, Field Supervisors and Journeyman members who strive to train for the future.

We at IBEW Local 760 are proud to be in compliance with the Department of Labor. We work very hard to follow the rules and regulations set forth by the Federal Government.

Y-12 DOE Site, recently held an Apprenticeship Graduation Ceremony for our new IBEW Local 760 Journeyman Wiremen. Business Manager Tim Tate and Chief Steward Raymond Hutzler presented certificates to Brothers: Weston Alexander, Cody Bramlett, Stephen Dunn and Jamie Wilson.
On April 11, the non-profit, fully accredited institution is holding a virtual “Open Admit Day” for IBEW members who would like to discuss their higher education options. Thirty-minute appointments are available with IBEW Workforce Partnership Ambassador Stephanie Cietek from 8:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. EDT, where she can help answer questions about available degree programs and how to apply.
“We see a lot of our members take advantage of Excelsior’s programs,” said International Representative Anna Jerry, who serves the IBEW’s Utility Department. “Some people need degrees to make a move into management. Others just want to stay competitive in shifting job markets or to change careers altogether,” she said. “Higher education, particularly when it’s online and fits into a busy work schedule, can be a great back up plan for a lot of people.”
Excelsior is unique in that it offers generous course credits for company-provided training programs and certifications, many of which are applicable to the institution’s degree programs. “It’s a nice benefit,” Jerry said. “You’ve already done the work, so it helps not to have to pay for it a second time.”
Excelsior offers degree programs in technology and engineering, business, nursing and more. A full listing can be found on its website.
Those interested in participating in the Open Admit Day should contact Cietek by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (518) 608-8165.
