Please read this page in its entirety.

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT FOR 2025 - December 31, 2024

We only hold try-outs once a year - see bottom of page.

Do not complete the application without having the documents listed below.  They must be ready to send shortly after we receive your application. If you do not send all documents within 48 hours, your application will be removed from consideration.

You may obtain an application by calling 509-235-9393 or by clicking on the following link:


The following items are REQUIRED: 

Copy of Certified Birth Certificate
Copy of Social Security Card
Copy of Valid Driver’s License
Copy of High School Equivalency Certificate
1-3 Letter(s) of Recommendation (preferably from a current or former employer)
1-page Resume including work history

Please mail hard copies with your application (if you choose not to make an online submission) to:

Operating Engineers Regional Training Program
PO Box 210
Spangle, WA 99031

We will not accept an application without the above required materials!

NOTE:  Materials submitted will not be returned. Please send only copies of important documents. 

All applications will be reviewed by our Administrator and staff in early February of each year. We will invite most applicants to come to the Spangle facility for try-outs. Try-outs will begin in March and will last 2–4 days. Applicants that rank in the top 16 during try-outs will be invited back for Entry-Level Training. Entry-Level Training will start mid to the end of April for approximately eight to ten weeks - each year is different. (You will not be paid during training). After the initial training period, you will be added to the Apprentice Out-of-Work list. We cannot guarantee immediate work as it is cyclical and depends solely on demand.
