Build Your Career in the Electrical Field
Are you interested in pursuing a career where you can work with your hands, encounter versatile and challenging tasks, and enjoy high compensation and job security?
With a growing shortage of qualified electrical workers, it has never been a better time to join the electrical industry. There are plenty of job opportunities available in this high demand field.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), electricians will have a 23 percent growth rate between 2010 and 2020, which is higher than the national average!
Enroll in an IEC apprentice training program and earn while you learn! IEC Apprentice Training Programs combine the on-the-job training and formal related technical instruction you need to prepare you for this high-demand field. This means you get paid to work while you receive a top-notch education in the electrical field. Where else can you do that?
IEC has more than 50 chapter training centers nationwide that, in a good economy, provide training to almost 10,000 apprentices each year. IEC's training program provides knowledge, technical skills, and practical experience necessary to succeed in today’s electrical trade.
IEC’s programs are regarded as among the best in the industry; and are recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor and State Apprenticeship Councils across the country.
"IEC's apprenticeship and training curriculum is a great program. I can say first hand as I graduated from IEC six years ago. And it has continuously improved since then with the addition of hands-on training."
-- Thomas E. Frisella, Contractor, Southwestern Electric Co.
