Apprenticeship Programs

The largest volume of training continues to occur in the apprenticeship programs, which train carpenters, millwrights, cement masons, plasterers, bricklayers, pointer/caulker/cleaners (PCCs), marble masons, tile-terrazzo finishers, floor layers, glaziers, painters, ironworkers and cabinet makers. Apprentices in these programs receive a minimum of 144 hours training per year.

Through an articulation agreement with Metropolitan Community College, students who complete their apprenticeship programs in these trades receive 30 credit hours toward their Associates in Applied Science in Industrial Technologies degree. Students may apply any time through MCC, but must complete the apprenticeship and 15 hours at MCC to receive the 30 hours of credit. After these 45 credit hours, students typically only need an additional 19-20 hours to receive their Associates degree.
