Application deadlines indicate the last day you may submit a complete application package and be considered for the next round of interviews.
Application deadlines are quarterly:
Applications are accepted year round in Anchorage and Fairbanks. In other locations, applications will be accepted on an as needed basis when regional openings exist.
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.
Interview sessions may vary due to scheduling conflicts of the interviewers.
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.
The Interview Process
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). For more information on what to expect during the interview itself, a pamphlet may be obtained from the Apprenticeship School once your application has been accepted.
After The Interview
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 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 Department of Labor.
Candidates will remain on the eligibility list for 2 years. Candidates are eligible to reinterview after 2 years, or after one year if they have done something to improve their qualifications (gained work experience in the industry, obtained a certification, ect.)
A candidate’s position on the eligibility list is likely to change as candidates are selected for apprenticeship or more applicants are interviewed.
