The most recent application period ended June 15, 2018. There may not be another opportunity to apply to the apprenticeship program until 2019. To ensure you are notified when future application dates are available you will need to create an account providing your USER NAME and PASSWORD which will be used to access applications once they become available. You can do this by clicking on the red link below and pre-registering so that we may notify you 30 days prior to the “Application Process”. Meanwhile, it would be in your best interest to read the entire webpage so you are aware of the requirements needed to apply to the program for when the time comes. The “Workkeys” testing that is required is a test that can be taken at some Michigan Works locations and some Community College locations. It is not a test you can take online. You will need to go to the testing facility to take the tests.

The picture above is a sample of acceptable Workkeys test results. The document needs to show the test/manifest name, a level score for each test, and a scale score. Both scores must be documented to be accepted. The form will also state your name, testing facility and testing date. The correct term for this type of Workkeys documentation is called an “Instant Score Report” and should be given to you when you have completed the tests. The three tests should be shown on one page.
Thank you once again for your interest in the program,
