*8000 hours of on the job training will need to be completed prior to sitting for the Minnesota Journeyman Exam.  There is an exception to this rule in Minnesota for 2 year approved trade school graduates who need 6000 hours after graduation.  The Electrical Association's (EA) apprenticeship classes do not qualify as trade school credit and do not reduce the 8000 hour requirement. 

*If you are taking the apprentice course to meet requirements in additional states – please verify that this program meets their specific requirements
