    It all depends on the size of the market. In a small market they can't be nearly as choosy as the major markets.

    Im taking the exam in September..
    Registering on Monday
    will the exam cover all the knowledge areas the journeyman exam covers?
    I would imagine it would not be as 'deep' or more about basic union, general info but I am just assuming.
    Anyone here willing to fill me in?

    I showed up at the union hall yesterday morning and signed up to take the test. It was crazy how many people were there. Apparently the people at the front of the line had been waiting there since 3 or 4am. I got there at 10:15 (just after it opened), and I'm pretty sure I was around #275 to put my name in - and they only take the first 300. They had to send a ton of people in the back of the line home because they knew they weren't even close. Anyway - now just gotta wait for September 8.

    Actually, my fiance and I got there on Thursday expecting to see a line already. We checked back every 12 hours but nobody was lined up. We ended up coming back on Sunday early in the morning and just stayed there. There were a few people in front of us who got there on Saturday night.

    IATSE Local 1 Exam - What to expect?

    I'll be taking the exam for the IATSE Local 1 Apprenticeship on September 8th.

    Has anyone taken this exam before? I'm wondering if you can bring calculators or scrap paper for the math sections. Any advice about the exam would be helpful. I've studied 3 mechanical aptitude and spatial relations books cover to cover, and I'm feeling pretty confident in general. IATSE doesn't provide any information about the format of the exam, and it seems like most of the people at the office are on vacation so I haven't been able to inquire by phone.

    Thank you!

    Re: IATSE Local 1 Exam - What to expect?

    No direct knowledge, but based on similar exams*:
    Yes; if a non-programmable calculator.
    No; scratch paper will be provided if desired.
    Of course it's best to call and ask in advance, so as to have no surprises on the day of testing.

    IATSE Test Results

    How did everyone on here do? Any forum members make it? I was thankfully on the list, #30, but sadly no one else from my program at City Tech (New York City College of Technology) made it this year, so far to my knowledge.

    Re: IATSE Test Results

    Nothing official, but definitely more like two years. I have a number of friends who've gone through the program, and a couple who took the test in 2009. From what I hear, they're around the mid-30s from the 2009 test, so it'll likely be a few months before they even start on the 2012 list. Sadly, there's just not as many apprenticeships available as there used to be.

    Re: IATSE Test Results

    Whenever they feel like giving one. Could be a few years. They have to run out of candidates on their current list first.
