Apprenticeship Application

Anyone interested in joining the IUOE Local 406 Apprenticeship Program should call the training site @ 985-542-4322 to get on the pre-apprentice list. We take in new apprentices once per year. Applications are accepted from March to March of each calendar year . In April ,you will receive a letter to come in during May with your driver’s license, birth certificate, social security card, high school diploma or G.E.D., and a negative drug screen that was taken within 90 days of May . On that day in May, you will also take an aptitude test. Provided you pass the aptitude test, you will get a letter to come back in June to go through an interview with our signatory contractors and union representatives present. You will come back again in June and sign your indenture agreement and go through an orientation. The final step is to begin attending class in August.

This process is the same every year , so if you are interested, call before the end of March to apply for the next class.

Please contact the Training Center @ (985)-542-4322 for an application.
