Electrician Apprenticeship Technologies

Associate of Applied Science Degree

About the Program

The Electrician Apprenticeship Technologies program is based on the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) Oregon State Apprenticeship Training Council and local Joint 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 or electricians holding a journey-level card. If you are interested in becoming a registered apprentice in an Oregon state apprenticeship program, contact the Apprenticeship office at [email protected]. RCC supports the following BOLI-ATD trades: limited maintenance electrician (4,000-hour trade); inside electrician, limited manufacturing plant electrician, and sign maker/erector (8,000-hour trades).

The AAS degree is a credential within Rogue Community College’s Electrician 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. 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.
