About the Joint Michigan Apprentice Program

The Joint Michigan Apprentice Program (JMAP), a U.S. Department of Labor-certified program, is sponsored by Wolverine Power Cooperative and IBEW Local 876.

Housed at the Wolverine Training Center in Lake City, Michigan, the program is committed to producing safe, high-quality journeymen through exceptional, state-of-the-art apprenticeship training.

The Joint Michigan Apprentice Program features segmented training labs and field instructions performed at a single location in northern Lower Michigan.

For classroom, lab and field training, Wolverine Power Cooperative partners with Northwest Lineman College (NLC), an industry-leading educational institution that provides pre-apprentice, apprentice and journey-level training for hundreds of companies throughout the United States and internationally. Graduates of NLC are highly regarded in the power delivery industry.
