ATEI, IBEW Local Union 98 and the Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter of NECA are committed to working together to provide a safe workplace for all of our apprentices and members. From the initial “boot camp” training we provide for our new apprentices, to state-of the-art electrical and construction safety programs, ATEI facilitates a comprehensive safety & health training program.
