Admission Requirements of the Joint Apprenticeship Committee :

Selection of entrants to the Apprenticeship Program is made on qualification alone without regard to race, creed, gender, age, color, or national origin and based on an oral interview of those who meet the minimum qualifications.

The actual selection of individuals is made from a pool of those interviewed over a two year period. The Industry’s needs determine the number of apprentices accepted into the Program at the time.

Initial drug screening is required of all who are selected to enter the apprenticeship and are subject to annual and random testing.
