ALEXANDRIA, Va.—The Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) Foundation has received an in-kind training equipment donation from Schneider Electric/Square D valued at $75,453.52. This equipment will be used at the following IEC Chapter Training Centers: Northern Ohio, Central Ohio, and Atlanta.
The IEC Foundation works with industry partners of IEC National to help secure corporate donations of materials and equipment for updating the student labs in IEC campuses on an annual basis through the IEC Foundation Equipment Grant program. To date, the Equipment Grant program has provided over $5M in new laboratory equipment to IEC career schools nationwide. These upgrades in equipment complement the world-class IEC 4-year electrical apprenticeship education program and directly benefit the hands-on learning experience of IEC students, helping to ensure that IEC produces the highest-caliber electricians in the industry.
