How to Apply

We are currently accepting registrations for Fall 2024, in-person on a walk-in basis.

Our office hours for walk-in registrations are 10a-3p Monday through Thursday, and Friday by appointment only.

Please plan two hours for your visit. You will be asked to complete your Registration Form and a Math Diagnostic Assessment. Enrollment is not final until payment in full for the First Semester has been received. Please contact the school for current tuition rates.

The purpose of the Math Diagnostic Assessment is to verify that you are comfortable with the types of calculations you will need to be successful in First Year. Those who score below a 70% will be required to pass a Math Refresher class (provided by the school).  This class costs $75 and will be held from 5:30pm - 7:30pm on July 9th, 11th, 16th, 18th, 23rd, and 25th.

IEC Southern Colorado will not discriminate against apprenticeship applicants or apprentices based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), genetic information, or because they are an individual with a disability or a person 40 years or older.
