Griffin Electric Celebrates 8th Annual National Apprenticeship Week

HOLLISTON, MA — The U.S. Department of Labor recently held its annual National Apprenticeship Week, with Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. celebrating the event by recognizing the men and women who teach or are enrolled in the company’s in-house Apprenticeship Training Program. An electrical subcontractor throughout New England and the Southeast for nearly 45 years, Griffin Electric understands the importance of this federal initiative and has participated in each of the eight years since its inception.

The company provided a gift for every instructor and apprentice in each of its office locations in Holliston, Massachusetts; Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte, North Carolina; Pelham, Alabama; and Doraville, Georgia. Additionally, Griffin Electric raffled off a series of prizes while also providing food trucks or catered lunch to everyone during their Saturday classes. The company knows first-hand that its success would not be possible without the efforts of these individuals and is pleased to be able to demonstrate its appreciation for all that they do throughout the year.

Griffin Electric has prepared hundreds of men and women in pursuit of their license through its electrical and telecommunications program for almost 30 years. The free, in-house program is accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and designated as an approved training site by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Throughout the Apprenticeship Training Program school year, classroom and hands-on instruction takes place in the 27,500 square feet of dedicated training space that is part of the company’s headquarters in Holliston, and on-site at each of its regional offices in the Southeast.

Griffin’s apprentices earn compensation and are eligible for wage increases every six months, based on grades and work performance. They also receive full benefits while having the opportunity to gain 8,000 hours of practical field experience under the supervision of a licensed journeyperson.
