CECA Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Charleston Electrical Contractors Association (CECA) was organized and created by just a few local electrical contractors 50 years ago. Through hard work, dedicated members, and generous donations they finally have a place to call home.
Jamel Anderson, CECA President, shared that home is defined as the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household; home is an institution for people needing professional care or supervision. On March 7th, CECA celebrated the grand opening of their training facility with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to commemorate their new building that will be home to their 144 registered apprentices and 50 members.
During the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, The City of North Charleston’s Mayor Keith Summey pronounced March 7th, 2018 as Charleston Electrical Contractors Association Day as a way to recognize the impressive impact they’ve had in the community. Over 100 apprentices have graduated from the program and continue to impact the electrical industry as business owners, project managers, supervisors, and city inspectors.
Charleston Electrical Contractors Association (CECA) is a nonprofit group of local electrical contractors that gather together with a common goal to better the electrical industry. In 2008, CECA assumed the responsibility of the apprenticeship program and created the bylaws to be recognized as an official nonprofit organization. CECA’s Apprenticeship Program is registered through the Department of Labor and trains our future workforce by utilizing the National Center of Construction Education & Research (NCCER) to assist with filling the needs of the next generation of workers.
Transworld, Inc. Electrical Contractors has 14 employees that are currently enrolled in the Apprenticeship Program and many of our electricians and office staff are graduates. We are proud to support CECA and are looking forward to the new training facility that will provide a permanent place for our future workforce to be educated and trained to become professionals in the electrical industry.
