Selection Process
Updated On: Oct 05, 2017

  • All qualified applicants that turn in a complete application packet will receive a letter to schedule testing (basic math and reading) and personal interviews. 
  • Following the interviews, the top candidates  will be invited to participate in a Safety and Orientation Week at our training site in Ellensburg, located in Central Washington. This week is an opportunity for the applicants to get to know the basics of the trade and to be evaluated by the training staff. Room and board are provided. 
  • The top applicants will be invited to attend the required ten additional weeks of training in Ellensburg prior to being indentured as apprentices and dispatched on their first job. Again, room and board are provided. In addition, you may be eligible to receive unemployment compensation while you are at the Training Site. However, the Training Program does not pay you to attend training.
  • Upon completion of the ten week course, you will be placed on the “out of work” list. Since the work outlook is uncertain, your initial job dispatch will depend upon the amount of work available in the construction industry at that time. Applicants selected will be required to join the Operating Engineers Union after being dispatched. If you are not dispatched to work, you will have to re-apply for the Apprenticeship to be considered for next year's apprentice class.
