IEC Chesapeake’s E Apprenticeship training program requires a device all students must have in their possession to complete the coursework. Devices suggested are:  laptop, notebook, ipad. Students can view the items on their phone but not all information will show up on their phone and they may not be able to complete the homework assignments as prescribed. 

There are a lot of upsides to apprenticeships.

If you are working in the field for an electrical employer while attending the online training, you will receive the hands-on aspect working and the related instruction as required for your field via the online training program.
