“The vast majority of our students are employed full time as apprentices while they are attending school at IECRM,” says Marilyn Stansbury, CEO of the organization. “Our graduates literally ‘earn while they learn’ and many contractor employers pay for their electrical students’ tuition.” According to Stansbury, graduates typically earn $40,000-$55,000 after graduation, with no school debt.
Unemployed students can apply for tuition assistance and may receive free tuition and books.
“Virtually all of our students leave our program with no student debt, a full-time job, skills that take them anywhere, and a lifelong learning, sustainable living wage to support a family,” says Stansbury.
