Griffin Electric Celebrates Fifth Annual National Apprenticeship Week

HOLLISTON, MA — For the fifth straight year, Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric), an electrical subcontractor throughout New England and the Southeast for over four decades, participated in the U.S. Department of Labor’s National Apprenticeship Week. The annual federal initiative is an opportunity for businesses, communities and educators to showcase their apprenticeship programs and their support for apprenticeship.

In recognition of its in-house Apprenticeship Training Program and the men and women who are enrolled, Griffin Electric celebrated National Apprenticeship Week at each of its five office locations in Holliston, Massachusetts; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; Charlotte, North Carolina; Pelham, Alabama; and Duluth, Georgia.

The company values not only its apprentices, but all its employees, who dedicate time and effort to the Apprenticeship Training Program and Griffin Electric. The company commenced the week with a series of raffles, giveaways and a special luncheon for students during Saturday classes. Additionally, project foremen at each of Griffin’s over 200 active jobsites treated their crew members to lunch during the week in gratitude of their apprentices and the licensed electricians who help mentor them.

Griffin Electric’s 2 Columnsfree Apprenticeship Training Program has prepared hundreds for careers in the electrical trade for more than a quarter of a century. The program is accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research and is designated as an approved training site by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Throughout the school year, classroom and hands-on instruction takes place in the 27,500-square-foot of dedicated training space that is part of Griffin’s headquarters in Holliston, Massachusetts, and on-site at each of the company’s regional offices. In addition to 600 hours of classroom instruction, Griffin’s apprentices benefit from on-the-job learning, where they earn wages and benefits while gaining 8,000 hours of practical field experience under the supervision of a licensed journeyperson. Many Griffin apprentices and electricians advance into foreperson, estimating and project management positions.
