JATC Night Classes

Night Classes Resume September of 2022

Registration opens mid-July


Important: Night Class Information for All Students

(understand this information before you enroll in a class)


JATC night classes run from September thru April. No classes are offered during the summer months. Registration for classes beginning September 2022 will start in July 2022. You must register for classes using your TradeSchool account.

Students should contact mmiller@jatc26.org with questions concerning night classes.

Classes are open to Local 26 members and those affiliated with Local 26 upon special request. Choose your class carefully; you cannot delete enrollment once payment has been made.

Classes meet on different days of the week. A class meets once a week on the day assigned to the class. Classes run from 5 pm to 8pm. Before submitting your registration, confirm the class fits into your schedule and that it fulfills your training requirements. For example, if you are a Residential Trainee, you need to take only residential classes to satisfy your program requirements. Courses have similar names; verify you are selecting the correct class. Be familiar with the Statement of Policies for your program before you enroll in classes.

Classes require a small non-refundable fee to register. Apprentices and Step Up Students do not pay to take classes.

A completion certificate will be made available, for Journeyman level courses, to those who miss no more than one night of a 14 week course. A residential trainee must attend 6 of the 7 class nights to receive credit for the class. When it applies, refer to the statement of polices for your individual program for attendance and completion requirements.


Continuing education credits will be given for all code related classes which satisfy renewal requirements for jurisdictional licenses.

R-A Upgrade

First and second year upgrade students pay $120 for a year of instruction. Both first year and second year students attend two classes per week. Your class fee will be due through TradeSchool enrollment. Courses will be selected by the JATC. You will receive your class assignments by email.

Third year R-A upgrade students select their electives from the general list of classes. You must enroll in one 14 week course per semester. You may only attend one class at a time.

Residential Trainee and Step Up (Step Up only takes First Year Residential Classes)

Residential Trainees and Step Up must complete the TradeSchool registration process to be enrolled in classes. Successful completion of all four first year R school modules; Basic Construction Math ($30), Basic Circuitry ($30), Basic Conduit Bending ($30), OSHA 10 ($15), FA ($15) and Basic Life Support (CPR) ($15) is required for advancement from R2 to R3. Successful completion of all second year R school modules; DC Theory ($30), Applications ($30), NEC ($30), Blue Prints ($30) is required for advancement from R6 to R7. These are marked as Residential classes. (Step Up students do not pay for classes)

As stated above, a student must attend 6 of the 7 class nights and pass a test to receive class completion credit. Class absences are not excused and a student missing 2 or more of the 7 class nights must repeat the class to receive credit. Most residential classes are offered every quarter.

OSHA First Aid Standard 29 CFR 1910.151 requires First Aid trained workers on the job site. Although CPR is not expressly mentioned in the standard, it is recommended by OSHA that First Aid contain a CPR requirement. An interpretation of 1910.151 requires First Aid and CPR training to have a hands on component. It cannot be based solely on online training. The JATC will accept First Aid and CPR training from other organizations as long as they are reputable and provide hands on training. The JATC will accept American Red Cross, American Heart Association and National Safety Council training cards. If you are aware of other training options which meet the requirements above, please contact mmiller@jatc26.org for approval.
