Pass Through Testing

Pass-Through Testing

Pass through testing is available to any registered apprentice who feels they have the knowledge to successfully skip Level 1 (or Level 2, if applicable) AND they meet the qualifications to take a pass through test in our apprenticeship program.


Due to the current situation with COVID-19, this summer’s pass through testing will be done by appointment only and only in our Grimes office through July. TESTING THROUGH JULY ONLY.

Pass through testing is available to any registered apprentice who feels they ALREADY have the knowledge to successfully skip Level 1 (or Level 2, if applicable) AND they meet the qualifications to take a pass through test in our apprenticeship program.

Return all forms and payment to Sandy Conn at [email protected]. Once all paperwork and payment are received in our office, I’ll be reaching out to set-up the time for testing.
