IEC NY Chapter Apprenticeship Program
The cornerstone of IECNYs education program is the Five-Year Apprenticeship Training Program. This program is accredited by the US Dept of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship; is recognized by the US Dept of Veteran's Affairs; and approved and regulated by the NYS Dept of Labor.
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 44 college credits which are transferable to another NYS college toward an Associate in Applied Science Degree. For more information about college credits, click here.
