Electrician Apprenticeship Technologies

Associate of Applied Science & Certificate

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 Certificates and AAS Degrees provide additional access to related training courses across the state for registered apprentices and aligned program outcomes, assessments, and courses. 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 Science degree in Technology and Management at Oregon Institute of Technology.
