I am looking to get an apprenticeship with IBEW Local 3, I know it can be 3-5 years between open applications. I noticed on their website that applications are not being given out at this time, but to send a letter if I want to be notified when applications do become available.

Now this may seem like a silly question to you guys but I was wondering what should be in this letter. Something as simple as

Address
Date
TWIMC,

My name is _______ I would like to be notified whenever applications are being given out. Thanks.

Signage.

Or should it be more detailed. Any information would be great.

I have no idea when the last application process was opened or when the next one will be. I figure the sooner the better in sending a letter to request one though.

Thanks

the last one was 2008, with the test and interviews in 09. the last group from then has been called for the term that started in jan 14, which I was a part of) word is they will start again this summer/fall 14, so send your letter as you stated and keep an eye on the nys DOL site. test and interview would probably be mid 2015. As far as when one would start(i'm just guessing here, based on past) sept 15 or jan 16. GL, the wait is well worth it.
