IBEW JATC Instructors lead the field in NEC Challenge July 31, 2014

NEC Challenge returned to its roots at National Training Institute's trade show Last weekend, NJATC’s National Training Institute (NTI) Trade Show shook up the NEC Challenge with some special appearances, new platforms and record breaking scores. At our first 2014 trade show stop (and the trade show where the NEC Challenge first began last year), participants answered quiz questions about the NEC posed from NFPA staff members and got the chance to explore the all new NEC Challenge online game at the booth.

  The action heated up with the live questions as some of the country’s top NEC Code masterminds competed for the top spot on the Leaderboard. All participants that answered their first NEC Challenge question correctly were entered into a drawing for our prizes. The select few who proved their expert knowledge of the code competed to win the Leaderboard by correctly answering as many questions in a row as they could.  

  The Leaderboard came to a showdown between two members of NJATC Local 292. Derrick Atkins and Paul Holum are friends, co-workers, and according to last year’s champion Derek Vigstol, “They taught me everything I know about the code.” Paul led the field at the conclusion of day one with a score of 22, which was matched early on day two by Atkins. Looking at the rules and seeing that a tie at the top of the Leaderboard would be determined by a random hat drawing, Paul stepped up to take fate in his own hands. Answering a record-setting 36 straight code questions, Paul established himself alone at the top of the Leaderboard and in the annals of NEC Challenge history.

  More prizes were handed out to those who answered at least one code question and Beau Burton won the iPad drawing of over 170 entries.

  Derek Vigstol, last year’s NTI Leaderboard winner and first ever NEC Challenge champion, stopped by the booth to show off his championship belt, comparing it to this year’s all-new version up for grabs, and told this year’s challengers how his experience with the NEC Challenge has helped in his classroom teachings.

  Look forward for another opportunity to play the NEC Challenge and earn a spot in our 2014 championship Sept. 28-30 at the NECA Conference and Trade Show in Chicago. If you won’t be in attendance at NECA, play along anytime online to sharpen your skills and for more opportunities to win weekly and monthly prizes.

  Thank you to all the participants and NTI for a fun show! And, congratulations to our winners Paul Holum and Beau Burton. See you in Chicago this September!

IBEW Local 160 Jobsite Fatality Sept 14, 2014

Letter from IBEW Local 160 regarding IBEW Brother Brett Binman and Joshua Roberts:


Good evening, I wish I was contacting you all for a business reason, however, that is not the case. As many of you have heard, there was a very tragic incident that happened in our local on Monday. Two fourth step apprentices' were involved. Joshua Roberts is in stable but critical condition at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis MN, but it is with a heavy heart that I also report that the other apprentice has passed away. The details of the accident are very vague as of now as it is under investigation at this moment. Please see the obituary below and PLEASE pass it along. It would be wonderful if we could show Brett's family that we really are a Brotherhood/Sisterhood and turn out in numbers. Please make a point to pray for Josh and his family while he fights to recover from his injury's and pray for Brett's family in their time of need. Sincerely, Charlie Sable


Brett D. Binman, age 26 of St. Paul Park, died July 28, 2014 as a result of injuries sustained at work. A celebration of Brett's life will be 1:00 pm Saturday, August 2, 2014 at Kok Funeral Home, 1201 Portland Ave., St. Paul Park. Visitation will be 4:00-8:00 pm Friday, August 1st at the funeral home and also for one hour prior to the service. Interment will be in the Cottage Grove Cemetery. Brett Daniel Binman was born October 3, 1987 in St. Paul, Minnesota to Daniel and Patricia (Jackson) Binman. He grew up in the St. Paul Park area and graduated from Park High School in 2006. Brett went on to attend the University of Michigan and received his Associates Degree in Electric Lineman Technology. Brett was a Harley Davidson enthusiast and a devoted friend with a contagious smile that would light up any room. Those around him knew he was full of life and a hard worker. He was recently engaged to the love of his life, Ashley Rageth. Together they had remodeled the house that they recently moved into. Brett was a proud member of the IBEW Local 160 union and made some good friends with those he worked with. A great son, brother and friend to many…he will be truly missed. He is survived by his parents, Patricia (Tim) Grover and Daniel (Joni) Binman; siblings, Aaron Binman, Demetria Binman and Brantley Roedler; fiancé, Ashley Rageth and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, close friends and union brothers. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Robert and Niki Jackson and Arliss Binman. Casketbearers will be Daniel and Aaron Binman, Tim Grover, Casey Castillo, Lucas Majerus and Randy Siegert. "WE ARE BRETT STRONG"
