The Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the New York City District Council of Carpenters union will begin taking applications Monday for 100 carpenter apprenticeships, officials said.

Applicants can obtain a lottery card at the council’s training center, 395 Hudson St., in Manhattan, from 7 to 10 a.m. on weekdays. They must have a valid government-issued photo ID.

Lottery cards must be filled out in person and placed in a locked box. They will be available through Aug. 26 or until 250 have been distributed, whichever comes first.

Cards will be selected randomly and applicants will receive a letter inviting them to attend a required orientation program. They must arrive on time to the program and complete an application form. They then will be given information about a future interview and documents that must be provided.
