APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

Application Notables

  • Several items might delay the processing of your application; applications that are incomplete (i.e. missing information such as local number, registration number, class selection, class date, Business Manager’s signature) will not be processed, they will be returned to you to complete and your selections will not be saved.
  • If you do not have your registration number because you are an Apprentice, please indicate that.
  • You may use one application to indicate multiple classes selected, only if they are the same class – this may ensure that you are enrolled in a desired class sooner if you list multiple dates, especially as classes fill up, this also cuts down on back-and-forth emails inquiring for class availability that cannot be guaranteed.
  • Providing your email on the application will ensure a faster response as electronic mail, as a rule, is faster than traditional mail. It may be helpful to add NPTF@iuoe.org to your email contacts and/or check your SPAM folder for your initial correspondence.
  • The NPTF understands that circumstances change, in the event that you cannot attend training please contact the fund so we may fill your spot.
