Selection of apprentices to the Apprenticeship Program is based on qualification alone without regard to race, creed, gender, age, color, or national origin. The candidates selected for the Apprenticeship are determined by interview score, starting with the highest composite interview score. The Industry’s needs determine the number of apprentices accepted into the Program at that time.
Post selected applicants are required to pass a drug test, physician physical, and a background check. The AAEJATC bears the cost for these screenings.
Apprentices will be required to pay for administrative fees for each year of the apprenticeship. The current fee is $1000 and must be paid before starting the class year. First-year apprentices are given the opportunity to split up this cost in two payments of $500. Second – Fifth-year apprentices are required to pay the $1000 in full each fall.
