Apprenticeship History & Training Requirements
Apprenticeship training is a form of education that incorporates workplace training with technical in-school training. Since 1972, IEC has conducted apprenticeship training programs under standards approved by the U.S. Department of Labor.

We encourage our men and women interested in electrical and communication careers to consider what IEC training has to offer.
What Makes IEC's Program so Successful?

* IEC's four-year program curriculum is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Apprenticeship & Training.

* 144 hours of classroom training per year with lectures, demonstrations, labs, and homework, and a comprehensive final that must be passed prior to progressing to the next level.

* 2000 hours of on-the-job training per year which is administered by numerous local IEC offices nationwide.

* The nationally approved curriculum is in use nationwide by nearly 10,000 apprentices annually.

* Dedicated professional staff to assist you in moving apprentices through the program.
