The Western States Electrical Contest was held in Bakersfield Ca. on Nov. 5, 2011.

The annual event is a competition where each apprenticeship program in the 8th and 9th District sends one competitor, a graduate of that year, to compete head to head in a variety of electrical competencies. The contest dates back to the early 60’s, originally as an Oregon Apprenticeship contest, later expanding over the years, now to include all programs representing the two western districts. The contest typically has representation from 20-30 contestants.

The NIETC held it’s annual graduation on May 7 at the Airport Sheraton. Sixty three apprentices from the Limited Energy, Residential and Inside programs crossed the stage as a final statement completing their apprenticeship, and the beginning of the next segment of their careers. The evening was filled with laughter and good spirits as graduates ate, drank and exchanged experiences during the event.
