Your Electrical Career Starts Here
IEC provides an “earn while you learn” model for electrical education. All students can work full-time as electrical apprentices. There are options for those who are fresh out of high school, in need of a career change, or are 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.
