Content Management System (CMS)

The IEC Content Management System (CMS) provides chapter's greater flexibility in how the IEC National Apprentice Program is administered. Upload documents, videos, add activities, and more.

The most important feature of the CMS is the ability to conduct classroom learning online using the BigBlueButton video conference feature. Office hours, exam review, and more can be conducted online, providing the instructor with more time to focus on labs and hands-on activities.

In addition to apprenticeship courses, various ESTS courses reside on the CMS, offering instructors the flexibility to provide courses online or in the traditional printed format.
