it all depends on how many people they call and what section you go to..class sizes are different all the time..it seems initial training last 3 weeks now for my section at least (Power Cables)..for Cable, you have to do additional training..Flagging is 2 weeks, Respirator is 1 day, Confined Space is 3 days, and Asbestos is 1 week but not necessary to work in the field..

Hey just a question the application states that we need to meet education or experience requirement so my question is I don’t have any experience but I do meet the education requirement with having the associates in electrical so am I qualified to take the test. I applied to the exam that’s being given out this August

I am not sure if the associate degree counts but you can always call up 180 Livingston HR and Ask. I didn't have experience but I had a bachelor (at the time of the test I only had an ASS but they never asked for proof or anything) .

 

The test was easy, there were maybe 2 or 3 electrical questions (Simple Ohms Law and Power question, the formulas were given) and the rest was all comprehensions. They give you like a brief short story and then ask you a question about it, mostly safety stuff.

there is no set number for a class. it could be 3,10,40, or 100..it depends on what section needs what..and training im sure is different for each section..impossible to figure out unless you speak to someone from that section..

It depends.  And the management only knows that I guess.   Signal training will be about 2 weeks.
