“Apprenticeships are jobs. The apprentice works full time and receives training from the sponsoring organization. Apprenticeships are designed to meet the workforce needs of the sponsors (chapter or employer). Because of a need for highly skilled workers, many sponsors use apprenticeship as a method to train employees in the knowledge necessary to become a skilled worker.” (Maryland Dept. of Labor and Licensing).
IEC-Chesapeake began their online apprenticeship training seven years ago (2013). Why did we develop this system?
· Flexible learning for students who live too far away from a school location to commute
· Have incompatible work schedules, or are otherwise
unable to attend school in a traditional classroom environment, as eg. night work
· Care giving responsibilities which require them to be home in the evenings
· Job related- contractors have worksites all over the globe
Our progressive, state-of-the-art Online Electrical Apprenticeship Program is 100% web-based and uses an integrated training model so you can learn online at your own convenience, anytime and anywhere. Our system doesn’t eliminate the classroom; it offers a different delivery method for individuals who wish to become an electrician or who are working with their employer to meet that goal. Fully accredited by the state of Maryland.
