About the Owner

Stephanie Krise is the daughter of an electrician and married to an electrical contractor. Through the years she has personally witnessed the struggle to find qualified electricians and electrician helpers. That, coupled with the decline in the push for the trades throughout our region’s school districts, has created a dire need for well-educated and talented electricians. After years of struggling to find men and women who have the passion for a career in the electrical field, Stephanie started SJ Electrical Training & Apprenticeship to not only help to promote the electrical trade, but to help educate southern New Jersey youth entering the workforce, as well as offer continuing education to those already established in the field.

About the Lead Instructor

Andrew Pate is a graduate of Salem County Vo-Tech. He started his career in the electrical field in 2013, working with Eric Krise Electrical Contractor in Elmer, NJ. After a year of learning, combined with a passion for growth, he was promoted to the position of foreman, where he oversaw multiple projects. As he continued to develop as an electrician, he was promoted two years later to an estimator. This led to Andrew seeing the field in an entirely different perspective, where he gained a new mindset for the trade. Andrew sees the demand for true, common sense education and the need for a path for people who want the extra edge to put themselves at the top of their industry.

About the Lead Apprenticeship Instructor

Brian Thibault grew up in the electrical field. His father was an electrician who owned his own business, where Brian would work in the summer and on weekends.

There he attended various vendor training schools, including Square D, Hubbell, Crouse Hinds, and Generac. In 2014, Brian started working at Eric Krise Electrical Contractor, working on both residential and commercial projects, and becoming a certified Kohler and Generac technician. Brian is a member of the South Jersey Electrical Contractors Association (Chapter 3) and is a master trainer for NCCER. In addition to teaching, he continues to work as a project manager at Eric Krise Electrical Contractor.
