Apprenticeship and Training Programs

Apprenticeship training is a form of education that incorporates workplace training with technical in-school training. Since 1972, IEC has conducted apprenticeship training programs under standards approved by the U.S. Department of Labor.

What Makes IEC's Program So Successful?

  • IEC's four-year program curriculum is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Apprenticeship & Training.
  • 144 hours of classroom training per year with lectures, demonstrations, labs and homework, and a comprehensive final that must be passed prior to graduating to the next level.
  • 2,000 hours on-the-job training per year which is administered by numerous local IEC offices nationwide.
  • The nationally approved curriculum is in use nationwide by nearly 10,000 apprentices annually.
  • Dedicated professional staff to assist you in moving apprentices through the program.
With a growth rate in excess of 20% per year, IEC's apprenticeship program is rapidly becoming recognized as the premier electrical apprenticeship program in the industry. Through this combination of education, training and hands-on experience, students not only gain an understanding of theory, operation, and code, they also learn how to develop management and leadership skills.
