At IEC Chesapeake, we offer such a path, and encourage you to explore Electrical Apprenticeship as an option. Unlike a traditional 4-year program, graduates of the IEC Chesapeake Apprenticeship Program leave school employed, with no school debts to carry, and the typical pay ranges of graduates are $40,000-$80,000 a year!

Get started in the electrical, low voltage and renewable energy industry through our Apprenticeship Training Programs.
