4-Year Electrical Apprenticeship Program
CAREER PATH OF AN ELECTRICIAN
Are you aware that it takes an electrician 4 years, the same as a traditional degree, to complete their program? A Master Electrician trains as long as doctor studies, having at least 8 years on the job and the 4 years of classroom study. As with many professions, an electrician must also be licensed.
As compared to traditional university, four years of study (undergraduate program) will cost a resident of their state $97,408 for all 4 years (assuming fixed cost). He or she may or may not have a job during this time, and is not likely working in the field of study while in school. At graduation, he or she may or may not have a job; may take up to a year to find work within his/her field of study, and the graduate may have a school loan debt ranging from $15,000 to $100,000.
In stark contrast, IEC Apprentices are looking at $12,400 for all 4 years, work throughout the entire 4 years they are in school; many, in fact, work for our association member electricians. *Many members choose to set up a reimbursement program with good students, based on performance and grades. In some cases, most of the apprentices’ school expenses are entirely reimbursed. The apprentice finishes the program
with no school debts, and
the typical pay ranges of graduates are: $40,000-$80,000 a year!
