Public Works and Apprenticeship Application

The Public Works and Apprenticeship Application (PWAA) is the new online database exchange between the New Mexico Department of 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.

Program sponsors 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 the program sponsor.  

If you have any questions about account creation, system features, or changes in processes, you are encouraged to contact the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions State Apprenticeship Office, at (505) 841-8565 or via email at apprenticeship.info@state.nm.us.
