Graduating Apprentice in California Receives Willis L. Fehlman Award

Jun 14, 2019

The Inland Empire Electrical Training Center in California held a graduation ceremony for 36 apprentices earlier this month, and one of its standouts was honored.

Most of the apprentices were able to complete the five-year program by attending weekly training classes in addition to their normal 40-hour work week.  Six of the apprentices completed their training in a two-year accelerated program.

David Shankle, executive director for the National Electrical Contractors Association’s Southern Sierras Chapter, presented the Willis L. Fehlman Award to Caleb Martines from IBEW Local 477. 

The award is based on the apprentice’s outstanding academic achievement, superior job performance, building brotherhood, and commitment to excellence in the union electrical industry. Martines maintained a high grade average and had outstanding performance evaluations from his employers and instructors.
