Each of the four types of electrical work share common skills and knowledge. Each also has other skills and knowledge, which are specific to that particular area of work. Because of these differences, each type of work has a different apprenticeship program associated with it. Basic requirements for becoming an apprentice in any of the programs are similar, however. The following requirements are typical for individuals applying to be accepted into the Electrical Training Alliance:
- Minimum age 18
- High School Education
- One Year of High School Algebra
- Qualifying Score on an Aptitude Test: http://www.electricaltrainingalliance.org/SamplePage
- Drug Free
Each local JATC or AJATC may have additional requirements and provides training for electrical workers in a specific geographical area. Applications must be made to the JATC or AJATC in the area where you reside.
