Becoming an Electrician

Looking for a career? Looking for a way to support yourself and your family, but don’t have four or more years of your life to spend in college? Wanting to learn highly paid skills without running up a mountain of student loan debt?

Becoming an electrican might just be the key to your future.

Check out these facts:

  • The average electrician’s salary is just under $60 thousand, with apprentices typically earning 30% – 50% less.
     
  • The electrical field was ranked the second most desirable field in the construction industry by U.S. News.
     
  • The electrical field is estimated to average 23% growth this decade, higher than the national average.

There is no better decision you could make for you or your family than becoming an electrician. To start with, there is the pure satisfaction of knowing you are providing a service that is greatly in demand. The money is good. The position comes with a lot of respect.

Students at an IEC training center learn in interactive state-of-the-art labs taught by highly skilled and experienced instructors. The classroom training is combined with real world jobsite experience for a total education that is far different than what you receive at a traditional higher education institution.

If you want to get an MBA and work on Wall Street, then the electrical field is probably not for you. But if you want to learn real world skills and begin your career as quickly as possible, an electrician apprenticeship with Independent Electrical Contractors will get you there quicker.

And student loans are necessary to learn with the IEC. You actually get paid while you are still learning.

Your career will begin as an apprentice electrician, then proceed to journeyman status, foreman, supervisor and finally master electrician. There is no limit on how far you can take your electrical career with IEC.
