The IAM/Boeing Joint Apprenticeship Program, established in 1935
|How to Apply for an Apprenticeship|
The IAM/Boeing Joint Apprenticeship Committee will accept applications for apprenticeships throughout the year on an ongoing basis as new positions are identified. The Committee allows for Boeing and Non-Boeing interested parties to apply.
Applications were last accepted for new apprentices in August 2013.

All applicants must complete a COMPASS Assessment within the last 5 years with a minimum score of 60 in the Algebra Placement Domain, a minimum score of 67 in reading, and a minimum score of 32 in writing. Note: we do not accept other assessments, such as Accuplacer. Only the COMPASS is approved.

All Boeing and non-Boeing candidates may apply for open positions that are posted through the Boeing Global Staffing on-line requisition system at http://www.boeing.com/careers during the advertised application acceptance period. Applicant minimum qualification requirements will be clearly stated on the requisitions. Individuals who do not meet minimum the qualifications will receive an auto-notice encouraging then to apply when the minimum requirements have been met.
Boeing Global Staffing will serve as the impartial party, not associated with the Apprenticeship program, to review applicants for each trade and recommend qualified candidates to the Apprenticeship Committee for interviews. Structured interviews and candidate rankings will be performed by interview committees.
Candidates will be selected from each interviewed trade and recommended for inclusion in the Apprenticeship program. Interviewed candidates who are not selected for current openings may reapply during the next application acceptance period.
