At IEC Dakotas, we take training seriously. Our program is the product of decades of curriculum development and improvement and is hands-down the best apprentice training available today. The program is 4 years long. Each year is broken up into two semesters, and each semester is made up of 18 weekly lessons. Each lesson will take you 4-7 hours of study and consists of reading, homework, and a quiz. Each semester includes a midterm exam and a final exam. At the end of each semester, our Apprenticeship and Training Committee looks at each and every student to determine if they’ve met the requirements of passing. If the student has met the requirements, they will receive a certificate of completion signed by the Chairman of the A&T committee and the Executive Director of IEC Dakotas. After 4 years of training (8 semesters), our graduates receive a diploma from IEC National as well as a diploma from the Unites States Department of Labor (if they were federally registered) Available in classrooms, live online, and traditional online. $1695/year members $2395/year non-members
