WHY A CAREER as an electrician?
Texas is sizzling HOT and so is our Electrician Apprenticeship Program!
At Premier High School, students can begin training for a career while earning a diploma from our fully-accredited, 100% tuition-free high school! Career and Technical Education provides students with the academic knowledge and technical skills they need to gain entry to high-skill, high-wage, and high-demand industries. CTE provides work-based learning experiences that combine hands-on learning with real-world scenarios so students are prepared to enter the workforce or college after they graduate high school.
By graduation, you should have earned your Level 1 Certificate for Electrician Helper and move immediately into the paid apprenticeship program at TRIO. If you stay at it and work hard, you should be able to complete the apprenticeship and earn you Journeyman Electrician license.
