The state of Alabama has grown to about 5 milion residents, and has shown steady population growth for a number of years. Alabama currently sits in the middle at 24th in terms of population. With a pleasant climate, mild winters, many inland waterways and beautiful beaches in the Costal part of the state, Alabama is a popular destination for retiress and those seeking a pleasant place to make their home. As Americans age and continue to shift toward warmer climates, Alabama is a good candidate for heathy growth in the coming years.
Growth in the number of people who live in the state will drive demand for electricity, as well as those skilled in working with it. Acccording to the National Electrical Contractors Association, for every 7,000 electricians who join the field each year, 10,000 retire. Growth in the state combined with attrition in the industry will result in high demand for Alabama electricians for many years to come. The first step to getting your Alabama electrical license is an Alabama electrician apprenticeship from Independent Electrical Contractors.
Your IEC education will start at the Alabama IEC training center in Birmingham. You will find that it is way more than just a classroom education. You will find hands on training in a state-of-the-art lab. And you will work hand-in-hand with a qualified electrician.
