Georgia Chapter operates the apprenticeship program in accordance with the US Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship Standards.  The two main program requirements are:  minimum of 576 hours of classroom training and 8,000 hours (up to 4 years) of on the job training (OJT).  When both of these requirements are met a certification of Journeyperson Electrician is issued to the apprentice and they are offically recognized as an electrician in all 50 states.

IEC allows direct transfers in and out of the Georgia program to and from any other IEC cerfified program.  There are nearly 10,000 registered IEC apprentices in over 40 training locations nationwide.  IEC also allows apprentices from non-IEC programs to enter the program at advanced levels based upon a testing process for classroom placement.  OJT hours are accepted from a documented training program.

The apprenticeship program is offered onsite in Columbus, Savannah, and Atlanta; as well as  online (or distance learning) for those whom need to travel for work or are not closed enough to a physical location.  Both of these programs receive journeyman certification.
