Colorado Electrical License

An education from your local IEC training center is the key to getting your Colorado electrical license.


Deciding to become a Colorado electrician is a great career move. The electrical industry is growing faster than the national average, and in certain booming locations, the demand far outweights the supply of available qualified electricians. Colorado is a growing state, and there will continue to be a need for electricians for years to come.

So how do you go about getting a Colorado electrical license?

According to the state of Colorado government website:

Applicants for a Colorado journeyman electrician's license are required to verify eight thousand hours earned in no less than four years of electrical construction wiring experience, for lights, heat, and power; with a minimum of four thousand hours earned in no less than two years of that time being commercial and/or industrial work. Verification of experience must state the hours and months of the time spent performing residential and commercial/industrial wiring.

It sounds difficult. Luckily, Independent Electrical Contractors makes sure you meet the necessary requirements and gain the necessary knowledge for licensing. At a Colorado IEC training center, you will not only receive classroom instruction from world class instructors, you will also receive hands-on training in the field as an electrical apprentice. And you get paid to do it!

Our programs provide the hands-on technical skills to be successful in today's electrical field. Your education will consist of 8,000 hours of paid training and 576 hours of technical classroom instruction.
