HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:

After the application is received, the applicant is assigned an appointment for an orientation and achievement tests. After passing the achievement tests, the applicant attends an interview, and points are awarded to each qualified applicant based on education, skills, experience and the score on the interview according to NYS DOL Form AT 508. The scores are used to establish a ranking list from which apprentices are drawn.
When our employers need apprentices, and all apprentices already in the program are working, we accept applicants into the program from the ranking list. Unfortunately, there is no way to predict when that will occur since the demand for help depends on market forces that cannot be foreseen.
Local 22/JAC is an Equal Opportunity Employer and an Affirmative Action Plan is in place and filed with the New York State Department of Labor.
