Over the next few months, hundreds of IEC apprentices will graduate across the U.S. and IEC will celebrate their hard work, accomplishments, and bright futures through Operation Graduation.

Operation Graduation will follow 2023 IEC President, Cecil Leedy, and other representatives of IEC as they travel the country to speak at several graduation ceremonies. Get to know the graduates through photos, videos, and testimonials while you learn more about their local chapters through regional stats and accomplishments.

Our 2023 graduates have jobs, zero post-secondary education debt, and rigorous training in safety on-the-job. Check out the dates below that will be highlighted and recognized as a part of this year's Operation Graduation. 

Follow Operation Graduation through emails, social media, and newsletters throughout graduation season.

We love to share your chapter's success and accomplishments! Be sure to tag IEC National in your pictures and videos from your chapter's graduation ceremonies and use the hashtag #WeAreIEC to share your special content with our entire community.
