About The Department
The Education Department has been committed to the education and training needs of our members and leaders since its establishment in 1924. The work of the education department is founded on the belief that when we educate and engage our members and provide them with the tools to be activists our union will thrive. The training and education programs that are provided by the IBEW strive to be inclusive of all our members by addressing the diversity that makes us strong while fostering a sense of solidarity across our union. The IBEW education programs provide comprehensive training in organizational and leadership development through organizing training, steward training, local union officer training and more. Below is a list of programs available to local unions and their members. If you would like to schedule a training for your local union, contact your IBEW International Representative and/or your district office.
