Enroll in an IEC apprentice training program and earn while you learn!
IEC Electrical Apprenticeship Training Programs combine the on-the-job training and formal related technical instruction you need to prepare you for this high-demand field. This means you get paid to work while you receive a top-notch education in the electrical field. Where else can you do that?!
Students will receive no less than 580 hours of hands-on training as part of their classroom activities and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training. Our instructors are trained in using an interactive approach. Students are encouraged to ask questions, allowing instructors to not only train, but to mentor apprentices.
Are you aware that it takes an electrician 4 years, the same as a traditional degree, to complete their program? A Master Electrician trains as long as doctor studies, having at least 8 years on the job and the 4 years of classroom study. As with many professions, an electrician must also be licensed. So let’s compare your two options, using (2014) stats:
|Categories||Traditional University 4-Year Programs||IEC Apprenticeship Program|
|Annual Tuition & Mandatory Fees*||$9427-$29720 (resident vs. non-resident)||$.52 per hour|
