Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC), a national trade association with thousands of members, provides electrical apprenticeships throughout Florida. The IEC-HCC partnership offers federal-and state-certified, Veterans Administration-approved apprenticeships in commercial electrician. These apprenticeship programs include training through a combination of classroom instruction (including theory, code, and controlled practical laboratory applications) and on-the-job training.
Students who complete the commercial electrician apprenticeship will be licensed journeyman electricians.
To be eligible for IEC apprenticeships, you must be at least 18 years of age, have graduated from high school or have successfully completed the GED, be physically capable of performing the work of the trade, and possess a minimum of 10th-grade level math and reading skills.
