Full Onsite Classes Returning to IEC
Dear IEC Contractor Member,
IEC recognizes that apprentices are struggling to complete the Electrical Apprenticeship Program this school year. Most of this challenge is due to the requirements that COVID-19 brings to us in keeping students appropriately spaced. With these challenges recognized IEC is taking the following steps to improve apprentice success and improve the learning environment.
The Board of Directors realized the immediate need to train apprentices in the classroom in person. To meet this need IEC is investing in additional classroom space in our office park. The additional classroom space means we will have all apprentice attending in person classes on November 30, 2020 More Info.
