While You’re in School!
Are you interested in a career in the electrical field, but don’t want to wait four years while you finish your training? Independent Electrical Contractors of Kentucky and Southern Indiana has got you covered!
The IEC is a non-profit organization which offers a 4-year apprenticeship program to prepare students to become a journeyman or master electrician. Each apprentice at IEC is sponsored by one of our member contractors, which puts students in direct contact with potential employers.
98% of our students find employment with an electrical contractor after the first year of study, allowing them to earn both an income and valuable work experience while completing our apprenticeship program.
This July, IEC wants to offer you an opportunity to get your feet wet and decide if you want to pursue a career in the electrical field.
IEC is offering a free workshop in which participants will learn about working in the electrical field. The program will take place Tuesday, July 7th-Thursday, July 9th from 5:30PM-8:30PM.
At the end of the program, participants will have the opportunity to meet with potential sponsors for the apprenticeship program from among our IEC members. All of these sponsors are potential employers.
