You have a lot of options when planning your Educational Path. A good education leads you into new territories, arms you with solid skills that will support you for a lifetime, and helps you turn a passion into a career. 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. Our intensive four year apprenticeship training program is designed to provide an electrical apprentice with the necessary theory and practical training to earn the status of electrician.
