How do I apply

The application process for the El Paso chapter of IEC is as follows: 

  1. Complete an application at your local IEC chapter office – check with a local chapter for times and locations.
  2. IEC members or non-members can work for an IEC contractor or if you are seeking a job, speak with the chapter office about placement with a local contractor.
  3. Be a high school graduate, possess or working towards a GED, or be a high school youth apprentice.
  4. Have a reliable form of transportation (preferably your own car), to get to and from classes and job sites..
  5. Attend a program orientation.

 Though not guaranteed, in many cases, employers pay for all or part of your training program and textbooks – plus you get paid to work full-time as an apprentice.
