How is it going gentleman? I recently obtained a Class A CDL, scored fairly decent on the aptitude test and had an initial interview. I was accepted and put on the waiting list for the apprenticeship. I'm sure the list is fairly long of men waiting to get in. I am preparing to get CPR certified to better my chances. Is there any classes or pretty much anything else I can do to better my chances of getting a call? I appreciate any feedback from men in the trade. Be safe out there guys.

I talked to a gentleman at NEAT. He said they had a couple bootcamps already. There is an "organized" one coming up. What ever that means... He then told me it's all a waiting game untill you're called. If time comes to re apply, do so. Hopefully we get a call soon man.

LetsGoFlyers, do you happen to know what your ranking is? I recently took my aptitude test and word is, their is 300+ guys on the waiting list right now. But! word is their is LOTS of work and a high demand for guys/girls in 126's jurisdiction. So their could be more bootcamps in the near future.

Good evening! My local doesn't open up for applications until July 7th, I am going to apply! I will have my cdl permit tommarow, going to look into getting my license! I have a question about the test, I have talked with my local union and also talked to where they send for "IT" they both said that there is no test to take before interviewing! Just in case there is, is there a study guide I could get to study! I have taken quite a few algebra class but I don't really remember how to do a lot of it! One of those things if you don't use it you loose it, week that is my case I don't use it. Any help or surgeons would be appreciated!

I hope you gotten called up for your turn to go! From what I have heard this is a great job and a task good career to get into! Looking forward to hopefully getting in on this career!

If you're applying to an IBEW Local there IS going to be a test. Lots of Algebra. Nothing to crazy. Just high school algebra and paragraph comprehension. You'll do fine. Just make sure you practice your Algebra. After that if you pass you get an interview date. Good luck.
