WHAT TO EXPECT
When you apply to an apprenticeship program, it is not like applying for a regular job. Apprenticeship is a pathway to a career. The application and interview process takes time to complete, and the selection of new apprentices generally only takes place in the spring and summer months. Because of the tremendous value of our training programs, we have many more applicants than we will have openings. All applicants that meet the minimum requirements will be afforded an opportunity to interview, but only a small percentage will be selected into the program. If you are determined to become a professional in the electrical industry, apprenticeship is an excellent pathway, but it does not come easy. Be prepared to work to set yourself apart as a candidate, and possibly have to interview more than once before ranking high enough to be selected. Anything worth having is worth working for, and this program is no exception. The career opportunities that await are worth the effort!

- Sit for the Electrical Industry Aptitude Test – This test measures your math and reading comprehension ability. Each program has a minimum score that must be achieved in order to qualify for an interview. Click HERE to find out more about the Electrical Industry Aptitude Test, and what you can do to prepare.
- Appear for an Interview – Interviews will be scheduled around February/March each year, just prior to when we typically begin selecting new apprentices for the year. All applicants who interview will receive a score from the interview committee, and will be placed on the ranked list of applicants eligible to be selected, according to their score. As apprenticeship opportunities arise, offers for an apprenticeship will be made in the order of applicant scores, starting with the highest scoring applicant on the ranked list and working down until all available spots have been filled.
