    • A. Applications are available on the first Monday of every month from 8:00 AM -12:00 PM. All applicants need a Legal ID, a Social Security Card, Birth Certificate and a High School Diploma or GED.

    • B. After we receive the application and number it, within three weeks the applicant is called in for an interview.

    • C. The applicants are given an interview consisting of a math test, verbal and in most cases a hands-on evaluation. The applicant is given a percentage based on their trade skill. This percentage is from 50% to 100%. This determines where he or she will enter the program.

    • D.When the Union is in need of these apprentices, they are then able to join the union and procure employment. That is also when they start their formal training with the IMI.
