2016 Completion Certificate Request Form for Continuing Education Credit

Due to the nature of IEC convention programming, which focuses on management education, most IEC Con sessions do not qualify for CE credits towards license renewal. However, if you would like to receive an attendance certificate to submit to your local licensing authority for consideration, please complete the Completion Certificate Request Form and email it to Lysa Egly when you return home. Certificates will be emailed by December 15.

Electrical and Systems Training Series

The Electrical and Systems Training Series (ESTS) is made up of different units geared towards non-apprentice electricians. This program consists of various refresher courses for experienced electricians. Topics within the ESTS library will include: Motor Controls, Electrical Theory, Code, Blueprint, Electrical Learning, Fire Alarm, and Leadership. Within these overarching areas, there may be more than one section offered. For instance, within Motor Controls there are currently a 100 and a 200 course. It is important to note that these are stand-alone 40-hour courses; an individual does not have to complete every ESTS course offering. Prerequisites may be required, however, to complete a module.

With the development of the ESTS courses, the newly revamped Professional Electricians Program (PEP) will consist of nine of the 15 proposed ESTS courses. PEP will provide an alternative path for those who have electrical experience to gain the classroom knowledge without having to complete the four-year Electrical Apprenticeship Program.

IEC has released the second edition of the IEC National Fire Alarm Systems Curriculum, which is now part of the ESTS coursework.
