Learn about our unique training opportunities:
Along with on-the-job training, our apprentice electricians receive instruction through Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) by attending class one night a week during the school year. The training is academically rigorous involving homework, quizzes, and tests which require solid math skills. Encore Electric pays 100% of the tuition for this program.
Our Prefabrication Facility is an ideal training ground for incoming apprentice electricians to learn the materials and tools of the trade. Encore Electric pioneered the concept of “prefabrication” in our industry. By assembling electrical components in-house, for later field installation, we not only provide valuable training opportunities, but can control quality, create efficiency, and reduce costs for our company.
