For over 30 years, the Independent Electrical Contractors Rocky Mountain (IECRM) has been the leading electrical and renewable energy contractor association in Colorado.  Representing more than 200 member companies and educating over 1,500 electrical apprentices and licensed electricians annually, IECRM is dedicated to educating, promoting, and advancing the electrical industry.

IECRM, located in Denver, Colorado, is a chapter of the Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC), a national trade association for merit shop electrical and systems contractors and is the largest IEC electrical apprenticeship training program in the country.

What does it take to become an electrician?

In order to take the license exam to become a Journeyman electrician in the state of Colorado or Wyoming, an individual must have a combination of 8,000 hours on-the-job training, and at least 288 hours of classroom training for a total of 4 years of apprentice experience. Apprenticeship is an “earn and learn” training model that combines work-based learning with related classroom teaching using the highest industry standards. IECRM provides the classroom training that is required by the state of Colorado and offers resources to connect individuals to companies that are hiring.  Please visit our FAQ page for more information.
