The Math Module is July 20-22, 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
A Message from Paul Lingo, IECRM’s Training Director:
Due to current protocols with COVID-19, IECRM will be offering Hybrid Apprenticeship Classes for the 1st Semester of the 2020-21 school year. All IECRM Apprenticeship course work will be conducted ONLINE, led in real-time by Instructors. We will have dedicated Labs/ Practical Objectives scheduled throughout the semester so that IECRM students can receive hands-on learning if they choose to attend. We encourage all registering students to ensure a solid internet connection and technology to enhance the class experience. Laptops, desktop CPUs, or tablets are recommended; cell phones will work but will provide the least quality for the class experience.
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.

Here is a link to our training presentation as a resource for you. It’s about an hour and a half long, and you can of course skip through as needed.
As a reminder, to receive your early bird and member discounts, your membership must be paid in full. You can view the status of your payments in the My Transactions section.
NEW: Instructions for registration, checking grades and attendance, approving OJT work reports, and more can now be easily found on the left column when you open FlashPoint (see below).
To better serve the needs of the IECRM contractors and requests for improved apprenticeship management, IECRM launched a new enterprise system called FlashPoint to track all apprenticeship actions, including real-time OJT hours, registration and tuition, grades and attendance, and much more! Contractors, please update the contractor contacts that need access to student record management in FlashPoint by completing this form. Credentials will be issued within 1 business day.
IECRM’s four-year expert program is accredited by the US Department of Labor (DOL), Office of Apprenticeship (OA/BAT), recognized by the US Department of Veteran’s Affairs and approved and regulated by the Colorado Department of Higher Education, Division of Private Occupational Schools Board.
In addition to being the only state-approved electrical training school in Colorado, and one of the top electrical apprenticeship training programs in the country, IECRM students also earn up to 44 credit hours toward any Colorado community college. These credits are transferable to an Associate’s in Applied Science or an Applied Technology degree.
The vast majority of students are employed as apprentices while they are attending school at IECRM. Graduates literally ‘earn while they learn’ and many contractor employers pay for their electrical students’ schooling. Also, graduates typically earn $40,000-$50,000 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 debt, a full-time job, skills that take them anywhere, and a living wage to support a family,” says Stansbury.
