I have done a lot of digging and found quite a bit of useful information regarding the SIU’s apprenticeship program. I have decided I am going to apply immediately, as it sounds like the best way for me to break into this industry. There is really nothing else like it in the job market, regardless of industry.
However, much of the information I uncovered is years old and things seemed to have changed, so I figured I would start a brand-new thread. I called the admissions office today; my first question was how long it would typically take to get into a class, if accepted. The lady who answered stated it was a four to six-month wait, which is not horrible by any means. However, what I really meant to ask was if there was still a waitlist. Has anybody heard if there is still a waitlist involved?
