What are some of the advantages of going through an apprenticeship?

  • Gain skills and knowledge, while working on site. This will not only help you become more efficient at your job but will also naturally aid you when it comes time for in-class tests and assignments.
  • Launch your career on the fast track and reach higher compensation faster than your peers.
  • You will have a chance to prove your skills and knowhow to your employer, while at the same time, gaining greater confidence and knowledge in your profession.
  • Save on college tuition and expensive training programs.
  • From among the wide range of fields which integrate apprenticeship programs, you will surely find the right profession for you.
  • Apprenticeship programs allow companies to apply for government subsidies, lower costs, and truly understand the strengths and weaknesses of trainees and hire appropriately.

The Apprenticeship Process

  • Complete registration and the application
  • Gear up for a full day of interviews
  • Get your rank and score
  • If you pass you will begin the program, which includes on-site training and classroom theory.

Apprenticeship Standards and Framework

 

  • Each Apprenticeship will meet the national or local standards for that particular profession.
  • Apprenticeships come in over 200 variations and styles covering over 1,200 job roles.
  • The goal of the apprenticeship process is to qualify you to obtain certification like IBEW and NJATC.
  • Often the apprenticeship covers the core skills needed for the job, however, often more advanced training continues moving forward.

Apprenticeship Exam Sample Questions

Math Word Problem

At the pencil factory, 7% of all the pencils produced come out cracked. If 56 cracked pencils were produced on a given day, how many pencils were produced in total that day?

           
 

7% of the pencils produced are cracked.
7%×pencils produced = cracked pencils (56). We are given the number of cracked pencils (56) and asked to determine the number of pencils produced. In order to determine the number of pencils produced we will divide each side by 7%.
Pencils produced= 56/7% 56÷7% = 800
Remember, 7% = 7/100 so to divide 56 by 7%, we can just divide 56 by 7, and multiply the result by 100.
56÷7 = 8 8×100 = 800

Spatial Reasoning Problem

           
 
  • In the first option, the diagonal should appear on the back (hidden) side rather than on the front, in relation to the triangle.
  • In the second one, if the X is on the right-hand side of the cube, the triangle should be pointing to the right, towards the X, rather than up.
  • The third shows the triangle pointing up, towards the diagonal. The diagonal should be on the right-hand side of in relation to the triangle.
  • The fourth option shows the hidden left side and is the correct answer.

Mechanical Reasoning Problem

How far does the mass rise when the rope is pulled for 6 cm?
(All pulleys are fixed except for the pulley supporting the mass directly).

Options (in cm):

           
 

In a multiple pulley system, the force required to lift the load is calculated by dividing the weight of the load by the number of rope sections supporting it. The load in this question is supported by 2 sections of rope.
Note that the rope sections of the last two pulleys do not support the load and do not provide any mechanical advantage. Therefore, the force required to lift the mass is divided by two compared to the force required to lift the mass without the pulley system.
A multiple pulley system may allow one to use less force to lift a load, but the rope is pulled a longer distance than the load moves. The smaller force needed to lift a load with a pulley system is used over a longer distance. The ratio between the force required to lift the mass with the pulley system to the force required without it is inversely proportional to the distance the rope is pulled compared to the distance the load rises.
Therefore, if the rope is pulled for 6 cm then the mass rises 6 cm / 2 =3 cm
 The correct answer is 2.

Mechanical Tools Practical Question 

Which of the following tools can be used on wood?

 

           
 

The tool presented in image 2 in an electric saber saw, which uses blades of various sizes to cut through material such as wood.
The device presented in image 1 is a power drill. A power drill has an electrical motor that rotates a replaceable drill bit to drill a hole in wood, plastic, or metal.
The object presented in image 7 is a pipe wrench, which is used for turning and holding large objects such as pipes; it is not used on wood.
The object presented in image 4 is a hacksaw, which is used for cutting materials such as metal or plastic.
Therefore, the correct answer is 2.

Electric Circuits Question

In the circuit below at which point will the current be the greatest?

           
 

This is a connection in parallel of two resistors, and we are asked through which resistor does more current pass (note that the fact that A is located after the resistor and B is located before the resistor has no effect on the current measured at these points).
We will solve this by finding the voltage between the intersections (the places where the wire splits and joins) in two different ways, both using Ohm’s law V=IR, each following a different path.
First, find the voltage via the upper path, through the Ru = 2Ω resistor: IuRu 
Then, find the voltage via the lower path, through the R1 = 1.5 Ω resistor: V = I1R1

These are two ways to find the same voltage, and therefore the quantities we found are equal. Then IuRu = IlRl, or after substituting the resistance values, 2Iu = 1.5Il. We conclude that Iu < Il.
Intuitively, what happens here is that more current flows through the path of least resistance (when the voltage, or "driving force", is the same).
Hence, the correct answer is 2.

Physics Question 

A force of 10 N compresses two identical springs in parallel for 8 cm. What will be the total distance that four identical springs in series are compressed?

Options (in cm):

           
 

An external force exerted on a spring causes it to compress or extend.
The distance of compression or extension is directly and linearly proportional to the force exerted on the spring, i.e., doubling the force causes the spring to stretch or compress twice as much.
When identical springs are connected in parallel, the applied force is divided equally between them.

Each of the two springs connected in parallel is subjected to a force of 5 N that compresses each spring by 8 cm (1).  On the other hand, had only one spring been subjected to a 10N force, it would compress by 16 cm (2).

When identical springs are connected in series, the entire force is applied to each spring separately.

Each of the four springs in series is subjected to a force of 10 N, and therefore compressing 16 cm.

Thus, the total compression is the combined compression of all four springs:
4 X 16 cm = 64 cm.

→ The correct answer is 4.
