Dr. James Witte, associate professor and Adult and Higher Education program coordinator in the Department of Educational Foundations, Leadership and Technology, will help develop an advanced studies program for the National Training Institute (NTI).
The National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC) for the Electrical Industry invited Witte to serve on the NTI Advanced Studies Program Development Advisory Committee, which will help determine future training in the field.
Created nearly 70 years ago, the NJATC is one of the largest apprenticeship and training programs of its kind. The NJATC is a joint program of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). Through their partnership, hundreds of local programs have offered apprenticeship and training for residential wiremen, journeyman linemen, journeyman tree trimmers, journeyman inside wiremen and telecommunication installers and technicians.
The NECA is the management association for electrical contractors, while the IBEW represents approximately 725,000 members who work in utilities, construction, broadcasting, manufacturing, telecommunications, railroads and government.
