Public Works and Apprenticeship Application

The Public Works and Apprenticeship Application (PWAA) is the new online database exchange between the New Mexico Department Workforce Solutions and apprenticeship programs, contractors, and contracting agencies. The PWAA is an interactive tool providing many self-service activities including: registering apprentices; issuing apprentice certifications; entering wage decision requests; completing public works paperwork; making apprenticeship contributions; and contractor registration/renewals.

Contractors and contracting agencies will need to create an administrator account and then will be able to create various roles and accounts for any individuals who are authorized to conduct business on behalf of your company.

If you have questions about account creation, system features, or changes in processes, contractors and contracting agencies are encouraged to contact the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions Public Works Office at (505) 841-4400 or via email at public.works@state.nm.us.
