Many trade schools are Accredited Training Sponsors with NCCER, however, they cannot verify journeyman level knowledge and skill. Dubak U is both an Accredited Training Sponsor (ATS) and an Accredited Assessment Center (AAC). As both an ATS & AAC, Dubak U can train electrical apprentices and test and verify their knowledge or skill upon completion of the apprenticeship program. Passing the Performance Verification (hands-on) or the Knowledge Verification (written exam), a candidate obtains a Verified credential indicating journey-level knowledge or skill.
Passing both assessments results in NCCERs Certified credential, the highest credential NCCER offers.
With more than 200 years combined experience in the electrical field, Dubak U instructors are subject matter experts, leaders in the industry, and are committed to educating new apprentices. Our two primary instructors have Certified credentials from NCCER. This is the gold standard from NCCER and is only obtained by passing both the Knowledge Verification and Performance Verification.
OUR COMMITMENT TO HANDS-ON TRAINING
Other local craft apprenticeship programs rely heavily on lecture and classroom seat time. Roughly 85-90% of training time is spent in the classroom, listening to lecture. At Dubak U, we believe the only way you can learn a craft is perform that craft. We have created interactive workshops and labs focusing on the classroom topics in each of the four levels. Apprentices will bend and install conduit of various sizes, pull wire, trim devices, learn controls, and more. Dubak U apprentices spend half their training time performing hands-on tasks they will be asked to do in the real world. As an industrial electrical contractor, Dubak Electrical Group has tailored the education program to focus on the skills needed to become a journeyman industrial electrician and covers the most challenging material in the electrical field.
DUBAK U IS ALSO AN ASSESSMENT CENTER
Tuition at trade schools can cost an apprentice over $15000 plus the added cost of books and tools. Dubak U’s apprenticeship program does not charge tuition or for books and is paired with a full-time job with competitive pay. Instead of tuition, Dubak U asks those completing the four-year program to commit to two years as a journeyman electrician for Dubak Electrical Group.
