Fully Funded - No Cost To You!


Electrical is all we do. Why train at just any college when you can train with the electrical industry specialists?


NECA has been around since 1916 and has a vast amount of experience behind its team. We can back what we teach.

Any time

We also take students midway through an apprenticeship. If you’re fed up with the college you’re currently attending and are looking for something better, please get in touch.

You're welcome

All apprentices are welcome. You don’t need to be employed by NECA to attend but we do require you to meet a minimum level of language, literacy and numeracy.

Perfect blend

We’re a not-for-profit industry association. This means we have the best blend of public and private training college benefits.

In touch

NECA is the peak industry body. This means your training is up to date and in step with the latest industry practices.


Private colleges are not obligated to keep their doors open. Your certificate may not be accessible 2 years from now. Don’t risk it. Train with someone you can trust.

We also employ

We also employ apprentices so if you’re left stranded half way through you’re apprenticeship we’ll endeavour to find you a position with one of our hosts.

How do I get in?
