Alterman was awarded AGC’s Safe Specialty Contractor of the Year five years in a row – from 2008-2013!
As a member of the South Texas Chapter of the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC), Alterman’s electricians complete a comprehensive five-year apprenticeship program that combines 1,000 hours of classroom instruction with a minimum of 8,000 hours of on the job training. Focusing on skill, knowledge, and attitude, completion of the program requires a firm commitment and a strong work ethic.
Alterman has implemented a proactive safety program. We supplement electrical training with in-house technology training and certification, code classes, continuing education, and new product training.
Alterman is registered by the State of Texas to teach continuing education courses necessary to maintain electrical licensing. Our program emphasizes accident prevention through planning, training, testing, awareness, recognition, elimination of hazards, communications, continuous improvement, and reinforcement. We make safety every employee’s primary responsibility. The results have rewarded us with a Workers’ Compensation experience modifier rate well below the national average, as well as favorable insurance rates.
