The 2021 IECRM Wire–Off was a tough competition, which showcased all of the skills our apprentices are learning. We are proud of each student and pleased to say all participants walked away with many tools and prizes.
Thank you also to the contractors that supported their apprentices through this important competition. Without contractors like you and the talented apprentices you believe in and support, IECRM would not be what it is today — the largest apprenticeship program in the country!
