The Rio Grande Valley Chapter, IEC currently has been awarded a grant for all Veterans. This includes anyone that is a veteran of the Iraq/Afghanistan War, and all immediate family members. Through this grant, any veteran/immediate family member will have their 1st year books and tuition paid, along with any tools required for the job. The IEC Member Contractor’s fee for that apprentice will also be covered. If they are an actual Veteran, they will still qualify for their GI benefits. IEC encourages all Veterans that are interested in the electrical field to apply as soon as possible. Please do keep in mind; there is a high demand for skilled electricians throughout the U.S. and we strongly encourage anyone interested in the field to apply.
