IEC Fort Worth prides itself on the passion and talents of our instructors. We currently have over 15 instructors for our Four-Year Electrician Apprentice Program and Continuing Education Classes.

As electricians themselves, they bring a wide range of experiences to the classroom, which helps our students develop an interest and understanding of real-life applications and the impacts of their skilled trade.

IEC Fort Worth is always looking for passionate and motivated instructors.

IEC Foundation
Investing in Tomorrow’s Electricians

Founded in 1996, the Independent Electrical Contractors Foundation (IECF) was formed to provide new apprentices the opportunity to gain the valuable hands-on training they need to join the workforce as professional electricians and technicians. Thanks to the loyal support from our industry partners grant funding and the latest state-of-the-art equipment has been donated to Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) training centers across the country.
