ALL Applicants must:

1- Be at least 18 years of age or older.

2-Be physically able to perform the work of a carpenter.

3-Have a high school diploma, GED or proof of enrollment in a GED program.

4-Have reliable transportation.

5-Be able to pass a pre-admission drug screening.

 

The Process:

Prospective apprentices take two tests: a math qualifying test and a tape measure test. Experienced carpenters may take a written Journeyman’s test. Applications and tests are also available in Spanish.

Those who qualify at the journey level are referred to a Carpenters Union Business Representative for job referral and Union membership information. Applicants who are found to be eligible for the Apprenticeship and Training Program may enter the program after they are placed with a union contractor for employment.
Apprentices are paid by the contractor for on-the-job training.

Upon acceptance to the training program, apprentices must join the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America and register with the State of Connecticut Department of Labor and Apprentice Council.

Apprentices receive on-the-job training while working alongside Journeyman Carpenters and they also receive Related Training at the training center in Yalesville, Connecticut. Related Training takes place one week every quarter. Example: 1 week in the spring, 1 week in the summer, 1 week in the fall, and 1 week in the winter.

The training hours are 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM, Monday through Thursday. Apprentices must attend 144 hours of training per year.

Upon completion of the 8,000-hour apprenticeship program, apprentices graduate to Journeyman level and receive certification from the Connecticut Department of Labor and The United Brotherhood of Carpenters. Apprentices must comply with The Connecticut Carpenters Apprentice & Training Fund Policies and be members in good standing with the Carpenters Union to participate in the Apprenticeship Program.

Joining the union is not a guarantee of work.
