Paving the Way for the Next Generation of Electricians: Instructor Appreciation Week
IECRM celebrates our instructors during the nationally recognized Teacher Appreciation Week, May 3-7, 2021. Today’s job market is incredibly competitive, and our instructors are an important part of our industry. Having great instructors to ensure proper training of next generation electricians in key proficiencies often is a catalyst for a student to get a foot in the door for a job.
IECRM instructors’ skills and professionalism play a key role in students’ continued success. They teach both hard and soft skills and highlight the need for learners to be well-rounded as they enter the workforce.
For the past 12 months, our instructors have been especially resilient by conducting their classes online, collaborating with fellow instructors, and creating their own strategies for teaching labs on a virtual platform. Although this has come as a challenge for both students and instructors, we have received many compliments from students on the transition from in-class to online. We thank our wonderful team of instructors for that!
