In a unique limited-application recruitment, only 100 applications will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Valid government or state identification is a prerequisite during application pick-up.

To secure a spot in the recruitment process, applicants are required to pay a $25.00 testing fee, payable by money order to Local 12 AJEF. However, financial constraints need not deter potential candidates, as fee waivers are available upon presenting verifiable proof of financial need.

The recruitment process comes with specific eligibility criteria, including being at least 18 years old, possessing a high school diploma or equivalent, and passing a physical exam, sponsored by the committee, post-selection but before enrollment. The rigorous selection process includes a certified drug test and aptitude test administered by Apprentice Performance Solutions.
