ElectricPrep is a website that provides voluntary online courses specifically crafted for individuals who want to practice their math and reading comprehension skills before taking the aptitude test. Courses offered include a mathematics refresher, reading comprehension and an introduction to the electrical industry. However, there is a fee involved (which we do not see a penny of it).
If you can't afford these prep courses, we recommend that individuals prepare themselves for the math portion of the aptitude test by utilizing Bossier Parish Community Colleges Open Campus, or Khan Academy's free math course for Algebra 1.
ElectricPrep will also prepare you for the apprenticeship oral interview, which is the most important component of the application process. Most interviews take 10 - 20 minutes. It gives our training committee an opportunity to evaluate your ability to communicate clearly and answer questions thoughtfully, assess your capabilities in communication and find out how you have handled situations in the past that are relevant to occupational success.
