“We immerse our students in real world situations, with electrical students expected to spend approximately 50 percent of their time in NTI’s state of the art, electrical training lab. We have found our practical, hands-on instruction provides tremendous benefits to students during their course study, and prepares them to be job-ready upon program completion,” said David Lee, chief operating officer of NTI. “We also teach students how to interact with clients and market themselves – the ‘soft skills’ a successful electrician needs to run a business or to become a valuable employee.”
Showing a strong commitment to its graduates, NTI recently implemented a new policy: Job Placement Services for Life. This policy is a guarantee to always provide access to the school’s job placement services when it could be most needed and includes recruiting and resumé development.

“For job seekers looking for new opportunities, a career that can provide stability and a real future can be just a few short months away. Now could be the perfect time to consider learning an essential trade, as there is a deep shortage of skilled workers with many service providers struggling to fill open positions. Use this gap to your advantage and take your future to the next level,” recommends Lee.
According to the U.S. Bureau Labor of Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, the average salary for electricians is $56,180, $48,730 for HVAC installers and mechanics, and $55,160 for plumbers.To enroll, students must be 17 years or older and provide proof of high school graduation or equivalent.
