The IEC Apprenticeship Training Program is a four-year program that will equip the prospective student with the skills and knowledge necessary to have a successful career in the electrical construction trade.
The only age limitation is the apprentice must be at least 18 years of age. There is no maximum age limit to enter the program. The apprentice must be physically capable of performing the various tasks that are required of an electrician.
Our apprenticeship program is approved by the U. S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship.
Military veterans may use their VA benefits while enrolled in the apprenticeship program.
Graduates of the apprentice program receive 42 hours of college credit through the Emily Griffith Technical College. These credits are transferable to most colleges or universities in Colorado. College credits can also be earned through the American Council on Education.
New incoming students are required to take the Math Diagnostic Exam. This exam is not a Pass/Fail exam, but a way to measure the apprentices ability to do the math required for the lessons. We have found that to remember the math and learn new electrical principles is usually too much for the new apprentice. This will give those apprentices a chance to brush up on their math skills before tackling new material. This exam is given by appointment and is free of charge. Any students who score below a 70% will be required to take our Math Refresher course before attending classes.
