Your Electrical Career Starts with IEC
IEC provides an “earn while you learn” model for electrical apprentice education. As a student, you can work full-time as an electrical apprentice, attending class one evening per week from 5:30pm to 9:30pm. There are opportunities for high school graduates interested in a career in the electrical industry, those in need of a career change, or experienced electrical apprentices. Once you become a Journeyworker or Master electrician, the Chapter provides continuing education to help keep your license and knowledge up to date.
“IEC feels more like a community rather than just a school. The instructors are great and I’ve been able to learn so much and greatly expand my knowledge at IEC. The way the courses and curriculum is set up is amazing, it’s at a great pace and everything I learn translates extremely well into my job.”
