Fifty years ago, ECA Chicago and Local Union IBEW established the IBEW-NECA Technical Institute (IN-TECH) as the premier apprenticeship education center for Local 134 electricians. To encourage students to pursue managerial positions within the industry, the IBEW-NECA Tuition Reimbursement Program was put into place for graduates who transfer into the Bachelor of Industrial Technology and Management (INTM) degree program at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT).
The IBEW-NECA reimbursement program covers 50 percent of tuition costs for a maximum of three courses per year for students pursuing the Industrial Facilities specialization offered at IIT. Coursework for the track includes construction and project management as well as the renovation and maintenance of buildings, facilities and equipment.
IN-TECH graduates who have been accepted to the INTM degree program may apply for tuition reimbursement. Applicants must have completed the IN-TECH Apprenticeship Program, be an IBEW Local 134 member in good standing and maintain a minimum grade point average.
