College Credit for IEC Training
The Independent Electrical Contractors, Inc. (IEC) has partnered with the American Council on Education's (ACE) College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT). ACE connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken outside traditional degree programs.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact Lysa Egly, IEC's Director of Education at (703) 650-0056.
Instructions for ACE Submittal
The American Council on Education's (ACE) College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT) periodically evaluates the IEC Electrical Apprenticeship Training Program and makes recommendations on how many hours may be applied as college credit. As a result of its 2015 review, ACE recommends that graduates of the IEC program be awarded 40 semester hours of college credit.
To receive the accreditation, the 2017 Student Registration and ACE College Credit form must be filled out by the local chapter and sent to IEC National, along with a check for $65.00 (made out to IEC National). The form is to be signed by a chapter representative indicating that they certify the accuracy of the information provided.
