I just finished my 25th year in the field. I owe a great deal to the education I got through the apprenticeship program in my chapter. I was able to get my master electrician's license and it was all ...due to the training and education that I got through the IEC. I'm still learning more every year that I go to the National Convention and take continuing education. The IEC makes me the best electrician I can be. See More

If I Could give them Zero stars I would. They did not have a low voltage instructor at the time I was forced into the course. Which was my trade when I moved here. I had 6 years cabling exp, yet they... would credit me only 1500 hours. I was showing Journeymen how to certain tasks, yet they had no Instructor.They will not honor their end of the contract that they have you sign. Only give you some crap as to how Coyote Cabling has given them problems, and that you should be thankful you're getting paid what you are. Go to another state and avoid this place at all costs, they only care about their money. See More
