for the 2017 Apprentice Wire-Off Competition
40 IECRM Electrical Apprentices will test their skills and knowledge in LIVE competitions held throughout the day. The top 4th year apprentice finalist will go on to compete at the IEC National Competition.
Each year across the country, hundreds of electricians in IEC (Independent Electrical Contractors) apprenticeship training programs will put their newly honed skills to the test to compete live in the IEC National Wire-Off Qualifier Competition. The Wire-Off Competition is a full-day electrical challenge that tests proficiency in basic motor control circuits, line diagrams, materials, and circuit installation. Each IEC chapter participates, hoping to advance their top 4th-year finalist on to the National Skills Challenge at the 2017 IEC National Convention in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Rocky Mountain chapter of IEC (IECRM), a non-profit energy and electrical trade association and apprenticeship school for electricians and the home chapter of the 2016 IEC National Skills Challenge First Place Winner, will hold its annual Wire-Off Competition on Friday, May 19, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in conjunction with the annual Energy Expo. At the Expo, attendees will get a first look at the newest tools and products geared for the success of the electrical, construction, and renewable energy contractors. IECRM expects more than 30 local and national companies to showcase their cutting-edge solutions at this event.
