Monthly work reports and work evaluation reports are required to keep track of your work hours and to evaluate your job performances. Construction Wireman (CW) pay rates are dependent upon the applicants documented electrical construction work experience and the type of job the CW is working on. Construction Wireman can apply for the Inside Wireman Apprenticeship at anytime.

1. Submitting the required information (school transcripts, etc), receiving a qualifying aptitude test score and interviewing with the Committee. OR
2. Working 4,000 documented electrical construction experience hours and interviewing with the Committee.
The Committee makes the final decision of acceptance into the Inside Wireman Apprenticeship Program. Prior to job placement, you are required to pass a pre-employment drug screening test.
