Our intensive four-year electrical apprenticeship training program is designed to provide an electrical apprentice with the necessary theory and practical training to earn the status of electrician.
An electrician is a highly-skilled tradesperson, who combines electrical theory, knowledge of electrical equipment, and the necessary job skills to safely and correctly perform services which enable consumers to utilize electrical, low voltage, and renewable energy for such purposes as lighting, heating, operation of electrical equipment, motor control systems, and appliances.
Taking place as traditional classroom instruction, the Midwest IEC four-year Electrical Apprenticeship Program is based on the IEC Nationally approved U.S. Department of Labor Curriculum.
Our Online Electrical Program is partnered with the Utah IEC chapter. It is designed to allow flexibility for students who live too far away to commute to our Brick & Mortar Onsite-Program, or who work evenings and overnight. This four-year, self-paced program uses an integrated training model that allows you to train online at your convenience.
As a program approved by the Department of Labor, the Online Electrical Apprenticeship Program meets the same requirements as the traditional On-Site classes. The system uses the Independent Electrical Contractor’s curriculum, taught by experienced instructors with over 15 years of experience in the curriculum and online system. On-the-job training is the same as our traditional classroom program.
The online training program is for those that have the motivation, dedication, and intuitiveness to become a qualified, professional electrician. We invite you to join others that have successfully achieved their electrical apprenticeship online.
