NJECA FREE Continuing Education Grant Program

The NJ Electrical Contractors Association (NJECA)

Is Proud to Announce our new

FREE Continuing Education Training Grant Program!

 

This program provides Electrical Contractors with Continuing Education Paid for with State Funding!

 

NJECA Partnered with MTC Educational Services & TNT Educational Services to provide NJ Electrical Contractors with Continuing Education Paid for with State Funding.

Many state governments have funds set aside to train your workforce at no cost to you.  The intent is to create a better skilled work force that will translate into productivity and profitability for these companies.

These extraordinary state programs allow you to realize income with no strings attached and without deviating from your company’s day-to-day activities.  These programs are intended for most companies regardless of size.

In today’s economy, trained and effective workers can mean the difference between a competitive business and an extinct business. The Skills Partnership program is a component of the Workforce Development and is funded by a small allocation from employers and workers. NJECA and its partners will be offering Electrical Contractors Continuing Education courses through the grant program via our partners at MTC Educational Services & TNT Educational Services. The CEU’s required for contractor licensing are partially covered by this grant, to be determined upon application review and award through the Grant program. 

TNT Educational Services is in the business of securing government funding by way of training grants and offering a wide range of training classes.

FAQ

  1. Are there requirements for my employees to participate in this program?
    All of your employees are eligible to participate in this program provided they are on your payroll. (1099 and subcontractors are not eligible).
     
  2. How much training is allowed per employee? How long do they have to take the courses?
    Typically each employee may take up to $1,000 in continuing education courses through the grant program. They have 12 months to take the training from the approval date of the grant.
     
  3. Is there any cost to me to participate in this program?
    There is no out of pocket cost to participate in the program. Your company information will be grouped and submitted for the educational grant through TNT Educational Services and once approved you will be notified directly regarding availability of funds for your training needs and any restrictions that may apply through the approved grant. Your employees must be paid while in training- this is your contribution!
     
  4. Am I automatically approved for the free education? 
    Once we receive your sign-up form, you will be submitted with a group of contractors under the grant program for approval.  These are done on a regular basis and “batched” together.  It can take from 2-6 months to be approved for the educational grant.

     
  5. What if I want to take courses that are not offered through NJECA or MTC Educational Services?
    TNT Educational services offers hundreds of courses available to you under the grant program. We will tailor your program based on your company’s needs and ensure that your educational needs are met.  If you would like to apply other courses to the grant program contact TNT prior to grant approval and we will determine if the grant funds can be used for that specific program.
     
  6. Can I apply for the grant again after it has run out?
    Yes, you can apply for the program after your first grant has been completed, it will go through the same process again for approval and may take several months to be approved for additional funds.
     
  7. This seems too good to be true, is it?
    When businesses contribute through payroll to pay taxes, those funds are used to support programs such as this. The funds are available to help grow the workforce and are made available to businesses via the grant program.  This is truly a great program for those who wish to take advantage of it, it not only benefits your employees and your business, but it benefits the entire workforce of the state by building qualified, quality industry professionals.
     
  8. Do I have to be an electrical contractor to participate?
    Absolutely NOT.  Any trade business in the State of New Jersey can participate in our grant program.  This includes manufacturers, distributors, engineers, solar, plumbers, builders, HVAC and other trade businesses!
     
  9. I have more questions, who can I call?

ATTENTION ELECTRICIANS!! INSTALLING GENERATORS?

Did you know that you can no longer install the gas piping required for a generator installation under the new state rule? You must now hire a HVARC contractor or plumber to perform this portion of the installation!

A new rule has been issued that requires that gas piping for generator installations be completed by a HVARC contractor or plumber.  The electrical contractor is NO LONGER allowed to perform this work!  Sign the petition to change this rule to allow electrical contractors to continue installing the gas piping for generators along with the rest of the installation!

  Click here to view/sign the petition to repeal this new rule!
