CCC addresses electrician shortage, WL-WV School District welcomes back staff and more

CCC addresses lack of electricians

In an effort to tackle the electrician shortage, Clackamas Community College partnered with local businesses. The college recently formed the Northwest Willamette Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (JATC) with employers from Benchmade, Enoch Precision Machining and Blount International to offer a new apprenticeship program that will train apprentices how to repair, replace and maintain electrical systems. This fall, CCC will offer courses for apprentices where they will learn basic electricity and manufacturing. For those interested in joining the JATC as a training agent, contact Britany Ellerbrook at This email address is being protected from spambots.
