IEC NY Chapter  Apprenticeship Program

The cornerstone of IECNYs education program is the Five-Year Apprenticeship Training Program. The IEC curriculum is accredited by the US Dept of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship, and IEC New York is in the process of obtaining NYS Dept of Labor approval for our program. 

IEC graduates typically earn $40,000-50,000 after graduation, with no school debt.

The vast majority of our students are employed while they are attending our program. Many electrical contractors will pay for their employees' schooling.

Tuition Assistance Awards are available for unemployed students. Apprenticeship Training is also GI Bill eligible.

Earn college credit too. A student can earn up to 41 college credits which are transferable to another NYS college toward an Associate in Applied Science Degree. For more information about college credits, click here.

With a growing shortage of qualified electrical workers, it has never been a better time to join the electrical industry. There are plenty of job opportunities available in this high demand field.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), electricians  are projected to grow 7 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

Enroll in the IECNY Apprenticeship Training Program and earn while you learn! IECNY Apprenticeship Training Programs combine on-the-job training and formal 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.
