***CLOSURE NOTICE***

Updated 3/23/20

 

Dear Students,

The Electrical Training Institute (ETI) Board of Trustees have been closely monitoring the evolving situation of COVID-19. For continued preparedness, the Board of Trustees have made the following decision effective today, March 13th, 2020:

Apprenticeship Classes

Postpone all apprentice classes until April 6th and resume classes on a condensed schedule in efforts to resume our normally scheduled Summer semester. The Trustees and ETI staff will reassess the situation on a daily basis and send out notice on April 2nd if it is decided that further postponement is required. If we are required to continue postponement, we will adjust the condensed schedule and also implement a condensed schedule for the Summer semester so we can resume our normal schedule in the Fall. The office staff is available for any questions: 858-569-6633

Dispatching & Rotations

Dispatch will continue as long as the union hall continues to remain open. Rotations are on hold.

Apprentice/ET Make-up Classes

All scheduled makeup classes will be cancelled.

Effective 03/18/2020, there will be a temporary hold on assessing the 59-day penalty for open apprenticeship class absences.  Apprentices whose rerates are being withheld only due to open apprenticeship/makeup absences that is less than 59 days will be rerated.  Their absences will still be in place (open) and the absence(s) will need to be made up once classes resume. The 59-day clock will start ticking once classes resume.

This applies to:

  • Open apprenticeship class absences incurred less than 59 days ago
  • Friday make up class absence(s)
  • Third (3rd) unexcused absence
  • JATC Work Card Friday make up class

This does not apply to absences that are beyond or assessed the 59-day penalty.

Journeyman Classes

Cancel the remaining March and April Journeyman classes.

Electrician Trainee Classes

Electrician Trainee classes will resume online via Moodle as they close out mid-April.

Contractor Classes/Meetings Held at ETI

Postpone any contractor or public meetings scheduled to be held at ETI until further notice.

Applications

Applications will not be taken on Wednesdays until we have reopened the building and resume classes.
Our offices will be closed to the general public but ETI staff are available by phone and email. The health authorities tell us that to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, we must:

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Heighten cleaning practices
  • Avoid contact with sick people
  • Stay away from work when ill, and
  • Do not travel to areas with high infection rates

All of our actions are focused on these areas. In addition, gatherings, including classrooms, should be avoided if possible.
ETI will continue to monitor Health Services and continue to adjust solutions and actions as we learn more. If you have any questions, be sure to contact ETI.

Sincerely,

Kevin Johnson
