Application deadlines are quarterly:
- March 31
- June 30
- September 30
- December 31
Application deadlines indicate the last day you may submit a complete application package and be considered for the next round of interviews.
Applications are accepted year round for the Anchorage and Fairbanks regions. Applications will be accepted on an as needed basis for other local apprenticeships when regional openings exist. See our current regional openings by clicking on the online application – they are located on the first page.
All qualifying applicants in a given quarterly period will be offered an interview during regularly scheduled interview sessions, usually about a month after the close of the application period.
For example, if an application is accepted during the January to March application period, the applicant can expect to be contacted likely sometime in April and offered an interview likely sometime in May.
All qualified applicants will be offered an opportunity to interview, however, the AJEATT will determine when interviews will be scheduled. If an applicant is not available to be scheduled for an interview during a regular interview session, the AJEATT will attempt to schedule the applicant at a later time, during another regular interview session.
Most interviews take 10 to 20 minutes. Applicants will be interviewed by a committee composed of 2 representatives of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and 2 representatives of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).
Once an applicant has been scored by the interview committee they will be placed, according to their score, on the eligibility list for the classification for which they applied.
The applicant will be notified by e-mail of the score they received from the interview committee.
As work opportunities arise, candidates for apprenticeship will be selected from the eligibility list according to the AJEATT’s selection procedures approved by the U.S. Department of Labor.
Candidates will remain on the eligibility list for 2 years. Candidates are eligible to re-interview after 2 years, or after 6 months if they have done something to improve their qualifications (gained work experience in the industry, obtained a certification, etc.)
A candidate’s position on the eligibility list is likely to change as candidates are selected for apprenticeship or more applicants are interviewed.
