NJATC Application Process

A three-step application procedure will greet you when you apply to become an Apprentice Electrician or Energy Technician.

  1. File qualifying Application.
  2. Take NJATC Apprenticeship Test Battery.
  3. In-person interview after passing JATC apprenticeship test.

NJATC Apprenticeship Test Battery

There are two parts to the NJATC test:

  1. Algebra & Functions 
  2. Reading Comprehension

There is no penalty for guessing. Since your score is dependent on correct answers only, it is best to answer all of the questions.

Your test is then scored by an independent facility that sends your results to your training center 2-4 weeks after you took the exam. The training center will mail these results to you.

You have a Qualifying Aptitude Test if you score at least 4 out of a possible 9. In the event that your test does not qualify, a re-application can be filed six months after you took the test.

If your exam does qualify, an interview will be scheduled to take place during the month following the test.
