Welcome to the website of IEC Dakotas!

The driving force behind everything we do here at IEC Dakotas is to provide the highest-quality electrical apprenticeship training available.  Our organization has been in the business of providing training for electricians since 1947, and over those 70+ years we’ve learned a little bit about how to do it right.  Even today, our Board of Directors as well as our Apprenticeship and Training committee meet every single month with one goal in mind: to continue to improve how we teach men and women how to become better electricians.  That dedication is why we’ve trained more electricians in North and South Dakota than any other training organization out there.  Call me if you want to talk about how IEC Dakotas can help you!
