IEC Instructor Training Program Level I
Level I: Initial Phase
Level I is the first of three levels in IEC's Instructor Training and Certification Program. Level I is tailored to enhance the knowledge of instructors at IEC chapters throughout the U.S. This program addresses a new rule from the U.S. Department of Labor, which requires instructors to be trained.
Instructor Training Level I is a media-rich experience that teaches IEC’s philosophy, apprenticeship, IEC curriculum resources, and instructional methods through video and interactive activities. Navigation is simple with an intuitive graphic interface to the five units and easily accessible targeted modules covering several topics.
