Apprentice of the Year |
Wire Off Competition

The IEC Fort Worth/Tarrant County Apprentice of the Year Competition is for graduating students of the IEC. Prizes will be awarded for the top three places.


  • Work for an IEC Member in good standing
  • Have completed the classroom portion of the IEC Apprenticeship Program
  • Have six years or less experience in electrical work.
    Electrical work is defined as any labor used in installing, maintaining, or extending an electrical wiring system and the appurtenances, apparatus, or equipment used in connection with the use of electrical energy in, on, outside, or attached to a building, residence, structure, property or premises. (This one requirement is for the National competition; it does not apply to IEC Fort Worth/Tarrant County chapter’s competition.)

The local competition winner will go on to compete in the IEC National Apprentice of the Year Competition.
