A Message from Paul Lingo, IECRM’s Training Director:
IECRM has updated policies and classes. Please read below to find out more!
In-person classes – In-person classes will be offered for the 2021-22 training program! Those that select in-person classes will have an option to attend class online (hybrid) on an as-needed basis only and will be required to attend in-person on exam nights.
Online classes – Students that select online classes will attend 100% online. Please select the online option if you are unable to attend in person.
Placement Exam Policy – IECRM has updated the Placement Exam Policy effective May 1, 2021. New students will have the option to test out of first-year and those with transcripts from a trade-related program will be able to test out as well. The updated policy will require those with trade-related transcripts with a below-passing score on the placement exam to take an overview course before starting the next school year.
Placement Exams must be scheduled and taken by July 1, 2021. There is a $75 placement exam fee per exam. This fee is waived for those with trade-related transcripts. For those needing the remedial course, this will be offered on July 16, 2021. Registration and pricing will be available by June 14th. Please contact the IECRM office at 303-853-4866 to schedule your exam.
Spanish 1st-year offering – You have been asking and we have delivered. IECRM will be offering its very first Spanish course. This inaugural class will only be offered to first-year students and will have the same instruction as other IECRM classes but in Spanish. Please note the curriculum and books will only be sold in English. Our instructor is bilingual and will be teaching the course in Spanish. Limited availability.
Fast Track – IECRM will once again offer a Fast Track Course. This course will cover two curriculum years (288 classroom hours) in one school year. We recommend those interested in this course have at least 6000+ on-the-job training hours. This will be offered as an 8-hour Friday course and two 4-hour evenings on Monday and Thursday.
Location and Night Preference – It is recommended to survey your students on their preferred location and night prior to registering and make sure to include and/or update it when registering your students in Flashpoint. The information in Flashpoint may not be accurate due to all classes being held online the previous school year. We will do our best to accommodate the student.
