Welcome to Hawaii Electricians Training Fund new and enhanced website!
In an effort to provide more seamless website integration and a more user-friendly interface, HETF has undergone a makeover! Our website domain has been changed from hawaiielectricianstraining.org to hetf1186.org. No more struggling to find our website because of the long domain name - we're keeping it short and to-the-point. We have added features such as a "Safety Blog" for our member beneficiaries and instructor resources for our apprenticeship/safety/skill instructors. Only Training Fund beneficiaries will be granted full access to all features of this website. If you still have questions after reading the below Q & A about whether you are a Training Fund beneficiary, please contact our office by calling 808-847-0629 or toll-free (for neighbor islands) 1-800-622-3830. You may also email us at email@example.com.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: TRAINING CALENDAR OF CLASSES COMING SOON! Thank you for your patience!
Question: What is a Hawaii Electricians Training Fund Beneficiary?
Answer: A Training Fund Beneficiary is someone whose employer (a Signatory Contractor to the IBEW Local Union 1186) pays into the Hawaii Electricians Training Fund on their behalf. Training Contribution amounts can be found by referring to the most current Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Question: What benefits do I receive as a Training Fund Beneficiary?
Answer: Training Fund Beneficiaries have the ability to attend all apprenticeship, safety and skill-related training classes at no charge. The Training Contributions that your employer contributes to the Hawaii Electricians Training Fund on your behalf pay for your class fees. This benefit also allows Training Beneficiaries to take, at no additional cost, the new minimum qualification classes that, as of July 2013, will be in effect for licensing requirements. Training Beneficiaries will save over $5,400 because they are not required to pay additional fees for these training courses. Full details on the "New Minimum Qualifications for Electricians Effective July 1, 2013" can be found under the "Information" section of our website.
