The Western Joint Electrical training society was established in 1969 to:

  1. To assist, develop and foster the education and advanced training of journeymen in the electrical industry.
  2. To assist, develop and foster the apprenticeship system in the electrical industry.

The Western Jets is a partnership between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Unions 230, 993, 1003 and the ECABC. The Western JETS is responsible for the training of the electrical specialists employed by all signatory contractors of IBEW Local Unions 230, 993, 1003 which covers the Kootenays, Vancouver Island, Northern BC and the Yukon. We believe that through continuing education, our members and contractors will achieve the highest levels of quality, skill, value and integrity in the electrical industry in British Columbia.
