The Rhode Island exam is quick and easy to apply.  You will need: a JW license elsewhere, to have completed and be able to document 4 years OJT and completed and be able to document 4 years of related classroom instruction.  Link to the RI DLT form: https://dlt.ri.gov/documents/pdf/wrs/applicationelectricians.pdf

If you are interested, please contact the Local 99 JATC via email only at jconway@ibew99.org to sign up so you may receive a zoom link. 

If we have an overwhelming amount of people, we may need to require people to have registered for the RI exam to be included.

If we have an underwhelming amount of people, we may move to in person or reach further out into the Brotherhood to invite other members in the district or the nation to participate.  This will be at the instructor’s discretion.   Please sign up regardless and we will figure out how to make it work.
