New Minimum Requirement

As of October 17, 2014 we require one year of algebra as a minimum requirement for apprenticeship application.

Here is the new policy (online policies and standards will be updated soon)

Must have one year of high school algebra or integrated math 2 with an average yearly grade of “C” or better.  A college algebra course that meets or exceeds high school algebra, with a grade of “C” or better may be substituted for high school algebra.  A college math placement test which indicated placement in class Math 60 or higher may also be substituted for high school algebra.

All Minimum Requirements for this program are:

1) Must be at least 18 years of age

2) Must provide documentation proving that you are a high school graduate or received a GED

3) Must have one year of algebra as detailed above.
