More about the author:  The Electrical Training Alliance (formerly known as the NJATC) was formed and created in 1941 with the idea to have a joint training program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).  This program trains and teaches the best workers the electrical industry had to offer in our day and age while helping students in the electrical industry train in the ALLIANCE programs by earning and learning through apprenticeships.  The training is enhanced even more because the students are trained at no expense to tax payers and train some of the best future electricians in the world.  The Electrical Training Alliance continues to be a leading publisher of educational materials for the electrical industry and workforce.  They have crossed over into advanced technology incorporating apps, websites, and textbooks into their teaching and curriculum.  They have raised the bar in education to the classroom and have trained students better through their curriculum than any other curriculum in the electrical trade.
