What does it take to become an electrician?

A combination of 8,000 hours on-the-job training as an Electrician’s Apprentice and at least 288 hours of classroom training is required in order to take the license exam to become a Journeyman Electrician in the state of Colorado or Wyoming.

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.

2nd Semester Late-Start Registration Opens – Monday, February 15

This registration is for 1st Year Students only.

A Message from Paul Lingo, IECRM’s Training Director:

Since the current spike of Covid-19 cases, not only in Adams County but state and nationwide, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone in-person and the possibility of hybrid instruction at this time. This results in all classes to continue to remain online at the start of the next semester. We will reevaluate the possibility of transitioning to hybrid or in-person labs in February 2021.

Our goal is to keep our students, their employers, co-workers, IECRM staff, and their families safe during these times.

IECRM is working with ever-changing guidelines for in-class sessions and we are hoping to return to normal as soon as possible. Please stay tuned and we will update you as soon as we can.
