The IEC of Greater St. Louis is seeking instructors for the 2021-2022 school year.


Position Key Role:

IEC instructors are the key to future success in electrical industry. Instructors are hired to teach on a year to year basis.

It is understood by IEC that under these circumstances, clean, neat clothing may be difficult to obtain.
  • Class time is from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM, instructors are expected to arrive no later than 4:50PM
