Turn An IBEW Apprenticeship Into A College Degree

Central Ohio IBEW electrical apprentices can earn free college credits to pursue either a two- or four-year college degree.

The Electrical Trades Center proudly partners with Columbus State Community College and Franklin University to help apprentices earn a college education. 

Earn An Associate’s Degree

ETC apprentices can earn free college credits with CSCC by simply completing their apprenticeship. Apprentices can combine their apprenticeship technical skills and coursework with CSCC general education and basic related courses to earn an Associate of Applied Science, Associate of Technical Science, and/or certificates specific to the electrical industry.

Earn A Bachelor’s Degree 

After completing a two-year associate’s degree program from CSCC, apprentices can then take their education to the next level by working towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Management from Franklin University.

Through an agreement between all three institutions, students and graduates of the ETC/Columbus State Community College program can then work towards a Bachelor of Science in Applied Management from Franklin University.
