Welcome to

Western Colorado’s Chapter of Independent Electrical Contractors

Welcome to the Western Colorado Independent Electrical Contractors (WCIEC) webpage. Please take time to review our website and learn about what we can offer you. We are a professional group of merit shop Electrical Contractors on the western slope of Colorado who organized as a chapter and incorporated in the fall of 2004. We are proud to be part of the National Organization of Independent Electrical Contractors.


What does it take to become an electrician?

In order to take the license exam to become a Journeyman electrician in the state of Colorado, an individual must have a combination of 8,000 hours on-the-job training, and at least 288 hours of classroom training for a total of 4 years of apprentice experience. Apprenticeship is an “earn and learn” training model that combines work-based learning with related classroom teaching using the highest industry standards. The WCIEC (Western Colorado Independent Electrical Contractors) provides the classroom training that is required by the state of Colorado and offers resources to connect individuals to companies that are hiring.
