About Us

History of Program

The Harford County Electrical Contractors Association (HCECA) is an electrical trade association formed over 60 years ago, comprised of member contractors who saw the need for a well-trained and skilled workforce. With this vision, the HCECA Electrical Apprenticeship program was created in 1977. Since entering into a partnership with Harford Community College, HCECA has developed its electrical apprenticeship program into one of the largest in the state of Maryland and is highly regarded among employers for providing a high-quality education to its apprentices.

The HCECA Electrical Apprenticeship Program is a four-year electrical apprenticeship program approved and certified by the Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Council, Registry #919 and the United States Department of Labor.
