In case you weren’t aware, there are a variety of ways to make it into the electrical trade. One of the approaches that we here at Outsource recommend is through our Field Employee Training Program. The program has provided quality entry-level, low-voltage installers to our clients around the country. The introduction of this vigorous and well-designed program is done onsite at Outsource. The best news: you can complete it in a week at no charge to you!

There are two days devoted to obtaining your OSHA 10 certification. You will also get the tools, safety equipment, and skills to go out and work with our clients immediately. In addition to the OSHA 10 certification and the tools and equipment, you will learn the following:

  • Data jack termination: trainees will have terminated well over 100 voice and data jacks
  • Professionalism
  • Jobsite etiquette

Outsource employs over 2,000 technicians each week on job sites across the United States. We work with every national system integrator and all the major electrical contractors. It’s no wonder that many of our technicians continue to permanent positions. Our structured cabling course is an excellent entry point into the construction industry, and it provides a selection of options for choosing a career path. Outsource specializes in training those who are looking to transition into a skilled trade, and we offer it at no cost.

Read what Chris Trevino, the Field Operations Manager for the company, has to say about structured cabling as a viable career option:

The construction industry is always in need of new talent, and this has never been truer than it is today. The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently announced that it expects to add nearly 10 million new jobs to the U.S. economy through the year 2024. Many of those jobs will go to skilled trade technicians in the construction industry, and structured cabling is a great skill to have. As you gain experience and knowledge, you will be given more responsibility on the job and have the opportunity to transition into other areas of structured cable, including A/V and security installation.

Below are the primary goals for our unique training program:

  • We want to provide our clients with entry-level talent that they can cultivate and develop following their culture so they can attain their desired labor mix.
  • We are looking to give back to the community by providing valuable and free-of-charge training courses to those looking to learn a trade and start a career.
  • We are hoping to create career opportunities for aspiring trade workers by delivering hands-on training by qualified trainers in a single week timeframe.

If you have any questions about our training capabilities, please do not hesitate to contact us.
