Hard-hats and vests are NOT available, you must provide your own. If you register for a crane class, please bring your own gloves.

Room and board are provided free of cost to all apprentice and journey-level operators. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served Monday through Thursday, but ony breakfast and lunch will be served on Friday. Accommodations are dormitory style onsite at OE3 JATC. The dorms are closed on weekends. Please bring your own toiletries, such as soap, shampoo, towels, etc. Sheets and blankets will be provided. Pillows are NOT provided, you may wish to bring your own pillow and extra blankets for added comfort.


Day of all students registered for class at the OE3 JATC facility are required to check-in no later than 7:00 a.m. on the morning of the first class. Students driving a long distance may check-in to our dorms on Sunday between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. with the security officer.

Drug Test

Substance abuse testing will take place first thing Monday morning during orientation. This requirement also applies to journey-level operators.


All supplemental-related training and journey-level upgrade classes are two weeks long. Written and hands-on tests are used to assess progress and instruction. There is a small amount of classroom work, so students should bring pens, pencils and writing materials such as paper, tablets or notebooks with them.


If you register for a class but later find you are unable to attend, please notify OE3 JATC as soon as possible. There is usually a waiting list for journey-level-upgrade classes, and cancellations will be offered to other members. OE3 JATC has a No-Show Policy, which states that failure to attend your registered class session without giving proper notification may result in forfeiture of training eligibility for six months.
