Progressing in Term Status

Apprentices start at Term 1 on the actual date of Indentureship, and are scheduled to advance in Term Status every six months.  Apprentices that meet the minimum hours requirement for each Term level and have demonstrated the knowledge and practical skills for their current Term will advance to the next level.

Recording and Reporting Hours and Progress on the Job

From the time of arrival at the job site to the time of departure, those hours shall be recorded daily in the appropriate section in your Apprentice Log Book.  Apprentices report work-based hours and progress on the job through the submission of:

Monthly Work Reports, and

Field Progress Assessments

Apprentice hours and assessments are entered into the JLATA Database and reviewed regularly by the JLATA Board to monitor Apprentice practical skill levels and ensure they are receiving the work-based training that incorporates the full scope of the Apprenticeship Program.

Apprentices must be prepared to relocate and work in any location where they can complete their practical training.

JLATA is currently undergoing site maintenance at this time.

Some functionality may be limited for the duration of this maintenance.
