Starting with the Youth
IEC’s commitment to providing outstanding education and training services to the electrical, low voltage, and renewable energy industries is the foundation upon which all IEC programs are based. IEC Chesapeake understands the importance of reaching out to the Career and Technology centers in order to expose those students, who do not want to go or can’t attend college, on the option of apprenticeship. One way is by sponsoring the SkillsUSA Residential Wiring and Motor Controls competition in the state of Maryland and Motor Controls competition in Virginia.
State Career and Technology Education Outreach
As part of our continued community workforce development programs, IEC Chesapeake staff along with volunteers from the membership visit the local career and technology centers. When able, we also bring the classes to our facilities for hands on experience in the motor control and/or solar lab. This is a great way to deepen the students’ interest in the electrical, low voltage, and renewable energy fields.
