Applicant FAQs

HOW DO I TURN IN AN APPLICATION?

  • Applications are usually accepted once per year (in person) during the first 2 weeks of June depending on the employment needs of the Training Agents as well as the number of eligible applicants and apprentices who are out of work. We will post updates on the website as well as several other agents in the area when it is close to time. You can also call the office for more information. SEE UPDATE FOR MORE INFORMATION!

HOW LONG DOES THE PROGRAM TAKE?

  • To complete the program you needs at least 8000 OJT hours and 576 RT hours. This can be achieved in 4 years with an optimal work situation, passing the classes and fulfilling all other requirements of the program. However, this time frame can change depending on whether a class must be retaken, an apprentice is laid off or other disciplinary issues occur. Once you complete the minimum requirements you can be sent to take the Oregon State Inside Electrician Licensing Exam which must be completed with a 75% or better.

CAN I START RIGHT AWAY?

  • The program is very competitive and even during the busiest times we only open for applications once per year in the summer. Often 100+ applicants apply for an average of 15-25 placements. Ranking and points are important to entering into the program. If you can obtain more than 80 points you have a decent chance of entering the program provided you meet the minimum requirements. Applications are kept on files for 2 years. After that time you must resubmit your documentation during the application process.  Some applicants end up waiting a long time in order to get enough points to finally enter the program.

HOW LONG DO YOU KEEP MY APPLICATION?

  • If you meet the minimum requirements your applications can be kept on file for up to 2 years. However,  each year we send a letter of intent to determine if the applicants are still interested in pursuing the program and have kept the information on file updated. If you move or change phone numbers it is your responsibility to make sure the files in our office are updated. See Applicant page for more details. 

WHAT DO ALL THESE TERMS MEAN?

  • Training Agent: Employers who are registered with our program and can employee apprentices. 
  • Related Training: Classes that combine your work experience with theory required for the program. 
  • Journeyman Inside Electrician: A person who has completed all of the requirement to become an Inside Electrician.
