How to Apply
Below are the required steps for application and consideration for the Electrical Apprenticeship program. Each step must be completed before moving to the next step.
Step 1: Application
Currently, applications can be obtained in person at the Florida East Coast Electrical JATC or by clicking on the link above to download and print a copy of the application. Applications CANNOT be submitted online. The following documents are required to complete an application and should be brought with you when you visit the office or mailed in with your completed application.
Step 2: Aptitude Exam
The aptitude exam is validated for use by sponsors of the IBEW/NECA electrical apprenticeship programs to assist in the selection of apprentices. The Aptitude Exam evaluates candidates on their math skills and reading comprehension. A score of Pass or Fail is provided the day after the exam. Applicants are scheduled for testing in order of completed application dates.
Step 3: Interview
Applicants are interviewed and scored by the appropriate program committee. Committee interviews take place when needed; depending on the volume of applicants, it could take up to 6 months to be interviewed. Based on interview performance, all applicants are placed on a ranking list. Applicants are accepted into Apprenticeship programs based on their placement on the ranking list.
Step 4: Accepted Applicants
Only those applicants accepted into the Apprenticeship program will receive a letter from the Florida East Coast Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) informing them of the decision and inviting them to attend class after successful completion of a physical exam and a drug screening. Keep in mind, selections are not always immediately following the interview. Very often, several months may pass before actual selections are made and a new school year starts. Applicants remain on the ranking list for possible selection into school for one year before needing to re-apply.
The recruitment, selection, employment and training of apprentices during their apprenticeship, shall be without discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, age or sex – except the applicant must be at least 17 years of age to apply and 18 years of age at the time of indenture. The JATC does not and will not discriminate against a qualified individual with a disability because of the disability of such individual. The sponsor will take affirmative action to provide equal opportunity in apprenticeship and will operate the apprenticeship program as required under applicable law and lawful regulations issued thereunder.
