IEC’s New Worker program consists of 16 modules and is intended to prepare an apprentice for his or her first day on the job site. It is designed as a precursor—but it is not a prerequisite—to IEC’s four-year apprentice program.
Each module ranges from two to three hours in length and is focused on interactive learning. Module lessons include a short lecture accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation, and group and hands-on activities. The program is delivered digitally via IEC’s Content Management System (CMS) and students will receive a completion certificate for each module.
