IEC Atlanta Chapter was recently recognized by IEC National as the 2012 Apprenticeship Chapter of the Year. Only one chapter is selected out of the 60 nationwide for this honor each year.

The nature of this award is based upon the following criteria: the percentage of member companies participating in the apprenticeship program; use of innovative recruiting methods; and quality of student programs and services. Other factors include how well the chapter creates an IEC community, student grade point averages, and retention rates, as well as participation on local and national committees and instructor performance regarding certifications and training that make a direct impact on education quality.

“That it is with great pleasure that IEC Atlanta was acknowledged as the 2012 Apprenticeship Chapter of the Year knowing that it was the efforts and hard work of contractor members, instructors, and staff that made it possible,” says Training Director Todd Hawkins.
