Is Becoming an Apprentice Electrician the Right Career Choice For You?

There is an unlimited number of career paths you can take. You can choose to pursue a traditional college education, whereby you will spend two to five years to acquire an associates or bachelors degree. And that is fine and well.

But the problem?

Statistics show that the average college student leaves school with over $30 thousands in debt! And that is only for four year degrees. Those who choose advanced degrees, such as Masters or Doctorate degrees, often leave school with student debt in the six figures.

SIX FIGURES!

There are two major problems with the traditional college path:

  1. As just mentioned, most kids leave school tens of thousands of dollars in debt; and
     
  2. They leave school without actually knowing how to do anything!

There is a different way.

While society and government have continued trying to push every student into a four year college program, a dirty little secret has become not so secret, which is this: there has never been greater demand for skilled workers who know how to do things!

And there has never been a better time to become an electrician.

So then the next question is: how do you become an apprentice electrician? That’s where we come in.

Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) provides electrical training that is a combination of class room training in state-of-the-art labs, and real world, hands on training by actually working as an electrician. So not only do you actually gain real world experience actually doing the thing you are being trained to do, you GET PAID while yiou do it!

So let’s think about this: a college student will study for four years to take an entry level position in his or her industry, while creating a large amount of debt that must be repaid. A student with IEC learns in a hands on environment for four years while earning good pay...and leaving school with ZERO debt.

We do not mean to bemean the value of a college education. If you seek to be a doctor, lawyer, or college professor, then there is not much way around the need for going to college for many years. But if you have a love for math or electronics, or are fascinated by how electricity works, then becoming an electrician apprentice with IEC may just be the key to the life you want to live.
