Selection Process
Updated On: Nov 16, 2017

  • All qualified applicants that turn in a complete application packet will receive a letter to schedule testing and personal interviews. Letters will be mailed out in mid-December and the interviews will take place in mid-January. The testing consists of multiple-choice, 9th -10th Grade Math and Reading questions and is used as an assessment and will not count towards your score to be accepted into the Apprenticeship. 
  • 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, applicants may be eligible to receive unemployment compensation while at the Training Site. The Training Program does not pay you to attend training.
  • Upon successful completion of the ten-week course, applicants will be placed on the “out of work” list. Since the work outlook is uncertain, the initial job dispatch will depend upon the amount of work available in the construction industry at that time. Applicants selected for dispatches will be required to join the Operating Engineers Union at that time. 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.
