Wiesa News and EventsBelow is a list of recent news related to the Wisconsin Electronic Security Association
WIESA is looking to begin another semester with additional apprentices and journey workers. The new semester would begin mid July of this year. For the program to truly take off, and provide ever more benefits, like state-wide recruitment, the program must obtain a minimum threshold of ten apprentices and six journey workers. In other words, at least six new apprentices and three new journey workers. To achieve this threshold, we need commitments from members like you.
If you are willing to make a commitment to apprenticeship, please write a short letter on your letterhead addressed to the WIESA UATC (Unilateral Apprenticeship Training Committee) and mail it (snail mail or e-mail) to Dave Koenig at Capital Lock. In your letter indicate that you are willing to commit to putting “X” number of new apprentices and journey workers into the program. Please send your letter of commitment no later than April 24, 2015.
Obviously, if you have any questions you would like to review, call me or any of the UATC members.

WIESA, the Wisconsin Electronic Security Association is the first state chapter of the national association to implement an Apprenticeship Program for the security industry in the U.S that could become a national model. The program was unveiled on November 1, 2014.
“The program will provide a career opportunity to individuals with a desire to develop skills which will allow them to help people in very tangible ways while earning excellent compensation. It will also open doors to unlimited earnings potential and a very satisfying career,” notes David Koenig, WIESA Apprenticeship Chair.
Merlin Guilbeau, “The WIESA apprenticeship program will enable the industry in Wisconsin to build a well-trained labor force. It establishes a framework that can be utilized by the employers to increase employee loyalty, reduce training costs, attract more applicants, and improve productivity. All of this translates into a valuable service to public safety.”
