Default Inside wireman test

I just joined the Local 340 and was wondering if anyone had more information on how to become an inside wireman. I already have my CA General electrician card.

Here in Florida, Our local doesn't give much credence to a State or County issued license. In some cases it's a 50 question test and has no load calculations, box fill or all of the other things we used to have.
The very best route is a full 5 year apprenticeship with all of the pain and glory along the way. That's how you earn your stripes and peer respect.

Local 340 is a utilities local. You want the inside wireman's local. Ask the organizer which local handles inside wiremen.

I guess it all depends on which of their web sites you go to. One of them only lists utility work, another one say's they're inside too. So, I don't get why the OP is wondering how to get into the inside wireman program. Not enough info, I guess.

I just worked with a brother from 340. If you go to IBEW.org/tools you can search jurisdictions by local. 340 is i, rts, and spa which means inside, radio and television service and sound and public address.

Well, so much for "Union facts.com". If this is the case, why is the OP asking how to get into the inside wiremans program, if he's a member of that local?
What am I missing?
