(10th District Requirements)

What Is Needed To Qualify For The Construction Lineman Exam

  • You need either a US DOL certificate from an approved apprenticeship program or proof of 11,000 documented hours in the trade. Accepted documentation of hours can be W2’s, check stubs or tax transcripts.
  • You cannot have been in an IBEW apprenticeship and dropped out. (wait period is 2 years passed their estimated top out date)
  • Your W2’s will be used to calculated hours by taking the gross income and dividing it by your hourly wage for that year.  A check stub from each year is good but not required. If you can’t provide a check stub, then we divide your gross wage by the IBEW journeyman lineman rate for the jurisdiction you are taking the test in.
  • Once those hours are verified, you can take the test.  70% is a passing score.
  • You can retake the test within a month. If you fail 3 times then they have to apply to the apprenticeship.
  • You can’t see the ones you missed except the transformer portion because they are manually graded and score is inputted by the examiner on the electronic test before it is submitted

The electrical training ALLIANCE (previously called NJATC) was created over 70 years ago as a joint training program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the IBEW.
