About IEC

Established in 1957, the Independent Electrical Contractors became a trade association representing more than 3,300 members with 50 chapters nationwide.

Headquartered in Alexandria, VA, IEC is the nation’s premier trade association representing America’s independent electrical and systems contractors. IEC National aggressively works with the industry to establish a competitive environment for the merit shop – a philosophy that promotes the concept of free enterprise, open competition, and economic opportunity for all.

In search of an organization that offered professional training (apprenticeship program , safety training , and more) for their workforce, merit shop contractors in the St. Louis area came together to form a chapter of the Independent Electrical Contractors. On February 15, 1988, the IEC of Greater St. Louis was incorporated in Missouri. The mission of the IEC of Greater St. Louis is to advance the interests of its members, through ethical business practices, superior training, legislative advocacy and community awareness while promoting the merit shop philosophy.

The IEC provides superior workforce training, registered with U.S Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship. Recommended by the American Council of Education, IEC graduates receive up to 42 college credits hours upon completion of the program.
