Apprenticeship training is based on BOLI-ATD and local JATC trade-specific standards and is restricted to BOLI-ATD registered apprentices. Therefore, this is a closed enrollment program and not available to the general student population.
Apprenticeship training is a two-fold process. The apprentice, as an employee, earns a wage while receiving on-the-job training and also attends related training classes. Local JATCs of both labor and management work with the College to implement the apprenticeship programs. Progress of each apprentice is reviewed and evaluated every six months.
The apprenticeship model provides statewide transfer opportunities, ladder-type Certificates of Completion, Associate of Applied Science degrees and an optional transfer path into a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Technology and Management at Oregon Institute of Technology.
Opportunities statewide and more information about apprenticeship can be obtained at the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries Apprenticeship Training Division (BOLI-ATD) website www.oregon.gov/boli/atd/. The following 4000-hour BOLI-ATD registered apprenticeship and Oregon Building Codes licensed trade is offered:
State and federal laws determine entry requirements for all apprenticeship programs. General minimum requirements for entrance are:

Candidates for this program are selected while employed by an approved training agent. Upon being selected as an apprentice and acceptance after interview by the local JATC, a contractual agreement is secured between the apprentice, the JATC, the sponsoring employer, and BOLI-ATD.
Enrollment into this program requires sponsorship by an approved training agent (employer) and successful completion of MTH 052 or MTH 060 with a grade of “C” or better, or equivalent placement scores.
