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.
