The Telecommunications Technician Apprenticeship Program is designed to prepare the apprentice to take the Level I, II, and III BICSI certification exams. The IEC Telecommunications Technician Apprenticeship Program is based on a six-semester curriculum that is typically delivered over three years. The apprenticeship program requires 2,000 hours per year in on-the-job training and a minimum of 144 hours per year in class.
A BICSI-recognized program, our Telecommunications Technician 3-Year Apprenticeship program prepares students to excel in low-voltage applications. The Live Online Web-casting format was developed to meet the unique needs of Low-Voltage contractors who regularly move their employees, which makes it difficult to participate in a traditional classroom-based program. Classes are taught by experienced, engaging instructors who encourage students to participate as they would in the classroom.
To ensure students are receiving the necessary hands-on training, we require our apprentices to complete labs and skills training under the supervision of a Journeyman or Foreman on the job site.
Students are eligible to apply to take the BICSI level one exam at the end of their second year, and can apply to take the level two exam at the end of their third year.
