Part of being an Operating Engineer is being able and willing to travel the entire state of Colorado and the ability to work in extreme weather conditions. Part of being an apprentice is understanding that you are here to LEARN. An apprentice will likely not start as an operator on the first job. The expectation is that as an apprentice you will be given opportunities at the job by the contractor to learn firsthand. As you attend your required training at the CJAT Training Site and advance your skills, it is likely that a contractor will start to increase your learning time on the equipment. Please do not apply if you are not willing to entry-level work at the first of your apprenticeship.
Obtaining a CDL is advantageous, we will help facilitate the process of obtaining a CDL if an apprentice is interested.
I fully understand the following and by completing and submitting this application agree to Travel: this includes the entire state of Colorado and possibly other states, for work and to fulfill my training obligations.
Working in Extreme Weather: I may be required to work out in unfavorable weather conditions. At the beginning of my apprenticeship, I will be required to perform entry-level work that may include manual labor.
