IEC's mission is simple, "helping merit shop electrical contractors succeed!"
Electrical contractors whom practice the “merit shop” business philosophy have turned to the IEC for over 50 years for the “power to succeed.” With over 3,000 members nationwide, IEC has the collective power and wisdom to assist small and large contractors alike to prosper.
IEC Atlanta Georgia held its annual Christmas Party at Maggiano’s Little Italy on Friday, December 11th. This event was extra special as it also celebrated a major milestone in the history of IEC, 50 years! For such a huge milestone IEC Atlanta Executive Director, Niel Dawson pulled out all the stops! First, an open bar and delicious hors d’oeuvres were available as guests arrived for the Anniversary Gala.
Niel Dawson worked tireless to organize the 50th Anniversary Book with 50 years of IEC pictures and history given as a gift to all attendees. If you have a history with IEC there is a good chance you made the book!
He also enlisted IEC Atlanta Board President Kristen Williams of Penco as the emcee. The 2015 Board of Directors were acknowledged and the 2016 Board of Directors were installed. IEC welcomed new members Chris Caiaccio of Ogletree, Deakins, PC and John Chamapgne of Putzel Electrical Contractors.
The Atlanta Chapter operates the apprenticeship program in accordance with the US Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship Standards. The two main program requirements are: minimum of 576 hours of classroom training and 8,000 hours (up to 4 years) of on the job training (OJT). When both of these requirements are met a certification of Journeyperson Electrician is issued to the apprentice and they are offically recognized as an electrician in all 50 states.IEC allows direct transfers in and out of the Atlanta program to and from any program utilizing the IEC National Curriculum. There are nearly 10,000 registered IEC apprentices in over 40 training locations nationwide. IEC also allows apprentices from non-IEC programs to enter the program at advanced levels based upon a testing process for classroom placement. OJT hours are accepted from a documented training program.The apprenticeship program is offered onsite, as well as, online (or distance learning) for those whom need to travel for work or are not closed enough to a physical location. The Professional Electricians' Program (PEP) is an advanced apprenticeship program for those whom have at least 5 years of field experience, yet lack the formal education. All of these programs receive journeyman certification.
