Hello, I started the process of getting into the IBEW apprenticeship program last March. I've gone through all the meetings, test and interview which was complete in August 05.
I was told they would make a decision in Feb 06. I just called and they said they will be pushing it back again til work picks up.
Is it that bad out there? I know in Indy we have some new projects I would think the IBEW would be part of (new colts stadium, new airport wing). I'm just concerned if I get in the work will not be steady enough to actually make a living.
I'm wanting at least 40 hours if not more.
Anyways....I scored a 93.5 so hopefully I will be at the top of the list.
I'm sorry, Charlie. The training opportunities might be the best, but I just left a 5th year apprentice close friend who told me about a chronic problem in his local regarding stealing the test answers. Reputable open shop apprenticeship programs exist, and the bottom line is that the responsibility of obtaining the best education from any program lies with the apprentice himself. Moderator, I apologize, and feel free to close this thread now.
