We’re a member of the Central Virginia Electrical Contractors Association, offering apprenticeship training to employees who wish to participate. This program teaches the National Electrical Code which governs electrical construction installation. This is 4-year program meeting two nights a week during the regular school year. Upon completion, you’re qualified to take the journeyman electrician test to become a Licensed Journeyman Electrician in the State of Virginia.

Once your apprenticeship is complete and you have become a Journeyman electrician, you’ll learn how to manage other employees and become a team leader. When we look for our next foreman, we look at the knowledge gained, attendance, leadership and ability to work with others, and their pride in workmanship. Many of our foremen started as apprentices at Tolley.

We work with Henrico, Chesterfield, Hanover, Richmond, and Powhattan VO Tech schools to employ students who have started early in the trade, offering  part-time employment while still in high school. Once employed, you’ll be registered with the state apprentice program and registered to attend the night school program. More information is available at the Central Virginia Electrical Contractors Association website.
