ABOUT APPLYING TO THE WECA APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
In order to be eligible to apply for our apprenticeship program, you must submit your completed application along with a clear and legible copy of the following documents:
1. Education prerequisites for entry: A High School Diploma or an equivalent General Educational Development Certificate, a High School Proficiency Certificate, a College Diploma or equivalent education.
2. Proof of age. You must be at least 18 years of age. A passport, birth certificate, or a valid state- issued identification card/driver’s license is sufficient to show proof of age.
INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED!!!
Upon receiving your information, we will review and, if complete, accept your application. When we have apprenticeship opportunities available, you will be scheduled for a color identification test, basic skills test (measurement, reading & arithmetic) and a multi-craft aptitude test. If you pass the color test, basic skills test and multi-craft aptitude test, an oral interview will be scheduled for you. Once you have passed all required testing and oral interviews, you must complete an orientation session and pass a drug test. All scores (basic skills test, multi-craft aptitude test and oral interviews) are blended for ranking. Applicants will then be contacted when work is available. Once you begin working with a Member Contractor you become an "Indentured Apprentice" and are registered with the State of California and the Federal Office of Apprenticeship Training Employment & Labor Services.
