A Message from the Director

Updated 05/18/20

ETI Students,

Let me start with a heartfelt thanks to all students, instructors, and staff for the hard work and flexibility you have provided over the past couple of months. Making the adjustments necessary to complete the Spring ’20 semester was not an easy task, but everyone stepped up to the challenge and we were able to close out the semester very close to our original end of semester date. This accomplishment is truly a testament to the resilience and dedication of the group, and I thank you for it.

As I mentioned, we were able to close out the Spring ’20 semester and we have moved our full attention to the Summer. We will start classes on May 27th and will deliver the lecture portions of the semester utilizing the Zoom platform. The second half of the semester will be dependent on our ability to reopen the training institute on July 15th so we can deliver the hands-on portion of classes.  Books will be available, and the bookstore will be open in San Diego and Imperial Valley starting May 20th until June 5th from 2:30p-4:30p. We will allow five students at a time into the San Diego location to purchase books and masks must always be worn while in the San Diego or Imperial Valley building.

We will continue to provide information and direction on how we are moving forward, so stay connected with student council reps, look for letters and emails from ETI as well as social media and website updates, and please continue to communicate with your fellow classmates. Thank you again and stay safe and healthy.

Kevin Johnson
Director/CFO

How it works...

Apprenticeship combines on-the-job and classroom training, preparing the apprentice for a career as a skilled craftsman. Apprentices work during the day at training assignments with contractors (employers), who pay the apprentice directly for time worked. Apprentices may be sent to work anywhere in San Diego and Imperial counties.

Apprentices attend school two nights per week two semesters during the year (ETI operates on a trimester year). Our apprenticeship classes are credited through Palomar College, San Marcos, California. All classes are held in classrooms and labs at our training facility in San Diego and/or Imperial Valley.
