IEC Foundation

Once thought to be an impossibility, thanks to help and support from the IEC Foundation, the IEC of Greater St. Louis has enjoyed the privilege of broadening our education possibilities over the past ten years through hands on training in the IEC lab.

IEC Foundation

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of electricians is projected to grow 14 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. As homes and businesses require more wiring, electricians will be needed to install the necessary components. The job prospects for electricians should be very good, as many employers report difficulty finding qualified applicants.

For over 2 decades the Independent Electrical Contractors Foundation (IECF) has provided grant funding and state of the art equipment to Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) training centers across the country. More than 85% of donations directly support these programs.

Since 2000, the Foundation has provided chapters more than $4,000,000.00 in cash and equipment to help train workers for the electrical and low voltage industry.  The IEC of Greater St. Louis has received:

Cash – $10,250.00
Equipment – $191,303.00
Software – $5,800.00
Scholarships – $3,300.00
Grand Total – $210,653.00

Thanks to every Contractor and Industry Partner around the country who has made it possible for IEC chapters to add the benefit of labs to their apprenticeship programs.  We truly could not do it without you!
