The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers has had a presence in central Texas since 1894. After many tough years, Local 520 was re-chartered on Oct. 1, 1909.
IBEW Local 520 licensed electrical workers are highly trained and highly skilled tradesmen and tradeswomen, who have helped the region grow and thrive for generations — and we are not done.
Since 1945, our workforce has been trained through the Austin Electrical Training Alliance (AustinETA), which offers training through the rigorous registered apprenticeship program.
In addition to apprenticeship training, the AustinETA also offers upgrade training for journeymen and recently recruited electrical workers of any skill level.
IBEW 520 is committed to providing contractors who work in the central Texas area with the most experienced, highly skilled and highly trained electrical workforce. We strive to ensure our members and their families are taken care of through member benefits.
Throughout the years, the Local 520 workforce has contributed to some of the most iconic projects in Austin, helping central Texas transform into one of the most thriving regions in the country.
