Electrical Apprenticeship

In the state of Florida, apprenticeship certification programs are sponsored. If an individual is not already working with a sponsoring contractor, the IC FL East Coast Chapter assists qualifying individuals with placement. Students work full time while attending school one to two nights per week, and graduate debt free. They earn while they learn!

  • Qualified participants are placed with an Independent Electrical Contractor.
  • The Contractor pays for your schooling while you work full-time earning an income.
  • You will attend classes one to two nights per week for 4 years
  • You will graduate debt FREE.
