Once apprentices are needed, selected applicants will be notified, by mail, to attend a four-hour initial orientation.

At the end of orientation, applicants will be scheduled for an interview at a future date and will be provided with an instruction sheet and a list of original documents that will be required, if they are accepted into the program.

As apprentices are requested by signatory contractors, the top-ranking candidates will be notified to attend a final orientation. Applicants must arrive on time to the final orientation with proper documentation. All applicants must bring originals of all verification documents. Those that do not comply will be disqualified from further consideration. A conditional offer of employment will be made to all attendees of the final orientation.For more information, see the announcement on the NY State Department of Labor website: https://dol.ny.gov/news/carpenters-jatc-dc-nyc-august-17-2022.
