Default Applying to Local Apprenticeship if I don't live in the area (NYC)?

Hey all,

I know that Local 3 won't accept other apprentices until 2024, and I don't want to wait until 2024 and potentially become an apprentice. I was told that other Locals in commuting distance (25 or 363) accept apprentices more often but on their website it says I have to prove that I am a resident of that area for 6/12 months prior to applying. I live in Queens, but I'm wondering what I could do about that besides moving? Do they make an exception if you have a car and can/am willing to travel to work?

What do they consider "that area"? Zip code? county? city? State? Go to the "Contact us" part of that web site and contact them.

You could apply to Local 3 "North" in Westchester - they accept about 25 apprentices a year.

Move to the Washington DC area, assuming this virus pasess you could start work right away as an "R" helper and sign up for an apprenticeship and be a apprentice in 1-1.5 years
Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now
