How to Apply


Apprenticeships at Central Florida Electrical Joint Apprenticeship Program are open to anyone living in Florida who is at least 17 years age or older with a high school diploma (or equivalent) and reliable transportation. 


Aptitude Exam

The aptitude test is validated for use by sponsors of IBEW/NECA electrical apprenticeship programs to assist in the selection of apprentices. The aptitude exam evaluates candidates on their math skills and reading comprehension. The aptitude exam is given on scheduled dates and times from the Central Florida Electrical JATC. Anyone absent from the aptitude test must wait 6 months before being rescheduled. A score of PASS or FAIL is provided within 24 hours after the exam.

Committee Interviews

Applicants are interviewed and scored by the appropriate program committee. Committee interviews take place once a month; depending on the volume of applicants, it could take up to 6 months to be interviewed. Based on the interview performance, all applicants are placed on a ranking list. Applicants are accepted into Apprenticeship programs based on their placement on the ranking list.

Accepted Applicants

Only those accepted into the Apprenticeship program will receive a letter from the Central Florida Electrical Joint Apprenticeship And Training Committee (JATC) informing them of the decision. Keep in mind; selections are not always immediately following the interview. Very often, several months may pass before actual selections are made and a new school year starts. Applicants remain on the ranking list for possible selection into school for 2 years before needing to re-apply.
