Differential Aptitude Test (DAT). and our physical evaluation.  The two evaluations will be averaged together to equate all applicants final score and will be placed on the ranking list for up to 2 years.  This ranking list is where future apprentices will be pulled from as needed to meet the construction demand.

What is a DAT test?

DAT tests applicants in key areas directly related to successful job performance in the construction industry.

Abstract Reasoning – The DAT for abstract reasoning test is a non verbal measure of reasoning ability.  It involves the ability to think logically and to perceive relationships in abstract figure patterns.

Mechanical Reasoning – The DAT for mechanical reasoning test measures the ability to understand basic mechanical principles of machinery, tools, and motion.  The items represent simple principals that involve reasoning rather than specialized knowledge or training.

Numerical Ability – The DAT for numerical ability test is an assessment designed to test an individual’s understanding of numerical relationships and facility in handling numeric concepts.  It measures the ability to understand and work with ideas related to numbers.

Space Relations – The DAT for space relations test measures the ability to visualize a three dimensional object from a two dimensional pattern and to visualize how this object would look if rotated in space.  It assesses the ability to “think in three dimensions”.

Physical Evaluation – Applicants will be asked to perform common motions and activities that are expected of all apprentices as an Ironworker.  Included in this physical evaluation is a 10 question interview.
