  1. IBEW 353 Aptitude test questions?

    Union Topics
    I was just reading up on local 353 and I found out it's one of the hardest locals to get into as there are literally thousands of people in every intake, and only 100 - 200 get accepted. I want to have a grasp of what I will be challenged with during the aptitude test, by finding out what you...

  3. Do I need to take the aptitude prep course?

    General Electrical Discussion
    This seems like I'm almost being scammed. I was introduced to this apprenticeship opportunity by my girlfriend through her father, and it all seems pretty self explanatory. I'm just getting finished with STEM MAT 195 in college, and they are both telling me there's no use even trying if I don't...
  4. Rescheduling the aptitude test?

    Union Topics
    I have my NJATC aptitude test coming in two weeks. I've been trying to cram for it. Math has never exactly been my strongest subject and I just barely managed a passing grade in Algebra 1 in high school. I understand math skills are important for electricians, but I feel like it's something I...

  6. Telecommunications Apprenticeship Program

  8. Should I go union?

    General Electrical Discussion
    My electricity teacher told me that with my grades, and the math I have taken that I could easily get into the Union. He lined me up to take their aptitude test, and I want to know if the Union is something that I will want to be in. I am still going to take the test regardless, to see how I do...
  9. Can't get accepted

    Union Topics
    This will be my 3rd attempt at the I.B.E.W. apprenticeship program aptitude test.:censored: I love electrical work with a passion and I don't see myself pursuing any other career. It's just the MATH. I can study and understand the equations (most of them), but when it comes down to test time I...
