Recognized by Veterans Affairs

The IEC Chesapeake’s four year electrical apprenticeship program is recognized by the Veterans Affairs so veterans can receive their VA benefits.

VA Seal

Earn While You Learn

Veterans Affairs offers a program that assists veterans and dependents in learning a trade or skill through participating in apprenticeship or on-the-job training. You generally enter into a training contract for a specific time and at the end of your training period you gain job certification or journeyman status. In most instances you will receive a salary from your employer while you are training.

If you are eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill, REAP, VEAP, or DEA you can receive benefits from the VA in conjunction with your salary while you are enrolled in the program.  Effective October 1, 2011 Post-9/11 GI Bill recipients may also receive benefits while enrolled in apprenticeship/on-the-job training.

For more information on enrolling in apprenticeship or on-the-job training contact your local VA office or call 888-GI BILL 1-888-442-4551.

 

Career Path Development for People with Disabilities

The unemployment rate for people with disabilities is significantly higher than the national average. Many people with disabilities who want to improve their lives need help making informed decisions about creating a career path that interests them and meets their individual needs. Skills training and education help to define a focus for that path.

Easter Seals

Easter Seals is dedicated to giving people with disabilities hope through their education, advocacy, and outreach programs. The IEC Chesapeake has partnered with Easter Seals, as the largest provider of disability-related services to individuals with disabilities and their families, to offer military and veterans training, apprenticeship and/or continuing education classes in the fields of electrical, solar, VDV, fire alarms and motor controls. IEC Chesapeake furthers those opportunities by providing education and training specifically in the electrical contractor industry.
