Qualifications and Application Process

The next application date is May 2025.

Apprentices must be 18 or older, possess a high school diploma or G.E.D, and have a Birth Certificate or valid California driver's license.

Step 1: Fill out a written application.

Step 2: Successful applicants will then be asked to take a written examination covering general knowledge.

Step 3: Applicants who pass the written examination will be scheduled for an interview with representatives of the Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee (JATC) that governs the Training Program.

Step 4: Successful applicants are placed on a numbered list. The number of openings in the Apprenticeship Program is determined twice annually by the JATC.

Step 5: Applicants are notified as to when their classroom training begins.

Step 6: Trainees are indentured as apprentices after they begin job-site training.
