Industrial Mechanics and Maintenance Technology Apprenticeship

Associate of Applied Science Degree

About the Program

The Industrial Mechanics and Maintenance Technology Apprenticeship program is based on the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) Oregon State Apprenticeship Training Council and local Joint and Trades Apprenticeship Training Committee related training standards. It combines full-time, on-the-job work experience with trade-related theoretical instruction. The degree is available only to BOLI-registered apprentices. If you are interested in becoming a registered apprentice in an Oregon state apprenticeship program, contact the Apprenticeship office at [email protected]. RCC supports these BOLI-ATD trades: airframe/power plant technician and boiler operator (4,000 hours); tool and die maker, millwright and motor winder (8,000 hours).

This AAS degree is a credential within Rogue Community College’s Industrial Mechanics and Maintenance Technology Apprenticeship Pathway. The pathway model provides statewide transfer opportunities, ladder-type certificates of completion, and an optional transfer path into a Bachelor of Science degree at Oregon Tech. If students intend to transfer to Southern Oregon University's Bachelor of Applied Science degree program, transfer courses should be chosen from the list of electives where possible. See an advisor for more information or visit www.sou.edu/degreecompletion.

The degree features general education courses prescribed by Rogue Community College, related training credits previously earned in the certificate of completion, college credit for an earned journey-level card, and some industry electives. It also provides additional access to related training courses across the state for registered apprentices with aligned program outcomes, assessments and courses.
