When you say “pathway” an electrician thinks CIRCUIT. A circuit must be completed in order to deliver power- and that’s exactly how IECC feels about education and career opportunities.

We offer a number of Career Circuits for you to explore and complete: electrical apprenticeship for people interested in becoming electricians, telecomm technician apprenticeship for people interested in a career in low voltage technology, ad we can help you explore electrical distribution as a career circuit if you think Sales, Specification and Quotations, or Warehouse Management interests you.

Workforce development makes a difference. 

We make this education accessible by establishing relationships with high schools, trade schools, community colleges, work source centers, employment agencies and other for-profit and non-profit institutions.

Pre Apprenticeship: #whatsurcircuit

Step 1. Don’t let average grades or school performance fool you into thinking further education is not for you…we know grades don’t tell the whole story.

It’s not a state secret…some people don’t do their best in traditional classrooms or with traditional subjects. That doesn’t mean you might not do very well in the electrical field. If you like math, technology, and like to find solutions for problems- you are who we’re looking for!

By participating in our pre-apprenticeship programs, students discover what it takes to become an electrician, low voltage technician, or work in the many facets of distribution. These programs provide training on basic skills and improve upon skills students may already have in preparation for an apprenticeship program and working in the industry.

IEC Chesapeake’s Pre-Apprenticeship programs are fully operational in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

We partner with the Department of Corrections, women and minorities, Job Corps and veterans, where applicable. We also work with local high schools and career and technical centers to sponsor field trips to our training facilities where we conduct hands-on Motor Control and Solar exercises, as well as classroom computer-enhanced training. Our close relationship with local community colleges affords us the ability to visit their Basic Electricity and Green Technology classes for recruiting purposes and apprenticeship opportunities. IEC Chesapeake has also established relationships with organizations that represent targeted labor markets, such as women and veterans, to help our members meet their contractual needs and assist residents of the community with enhancing their employability. visit us here
