Application Information

Applications for the apprenticeship program are open for two weeks each year. The applications for the Minneapolis and St. Cloud Area Construction and HVAC/R Service Apprenticeship Programs are taken in January.  The specific dates are listed on the Home Page under News and Events.

Application process

* You must apply for the apprenticeship program during the two week period that the applications are open and meet all of the minimum qualifications (see below).  NOTE:  Photocopies are NOT provided by the JAC.

* You need to bring a photo copy of your U.S. State Issued High School Diploma or State Issued GED.  The GED must have been obtained through an approved GED Testing Center recognized by the GED Testing Service.  Transcripts for both the high school diploma and GED are acceptable.  Copies of diplomas, course completion certificates, or transcripts of course credits for GED, High School, or Technical College must be attached to the application.  Proper documentation must be attached for applicant's educational background to be considered.

*  If you are applying for the HVAC/R Service Program, in addition to bringing a copy of your high school diploma/GED, you will also need to bring a photo copy of your driver's license and completion certificate and transcripts from a two-year technical college HVAC/R program.  Transcripts do not have to be certified, but they must have the student's name printed on them and the completion/graduation date. 

* All applicants that turn in a complete application with all attachments will be invited to an oral interview where the applicants will be ranked, the person with the most points will be at the top of the list, and as the jobs become available the names will be pulled from the list in descending order.

All applicants will be notified by mail with their ranking number within 2 weeks of the interview.
