IEEB - Electrical Training Programs

Iowa Code 103 states that “an applicant for a Class A Journeyman license shall have successfully completed an apprenticeship training program registered by the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training of the United States Department of Labor…” Such programs are traditionally offered by the area trade organizations. For more information about the traditional apprenticeship programs, please contact Apprentice Liaison Rich Madden at 515.284.4690. The Electrical Examining Board has also recognized the training programs of some technical schools as equivalent to the Department of Labor (DOL) requirements and have provided avenues for their graduates to obtain Journeyman electrical licenses. Listed below are the contact information for the accepted programs. If you wish to have your electrical program approved also, please click on the Quick Link for  the Post Secondary Electrical Programs (PSEP), located on the State Fire Marshal's website at iowaelectrical.gov
