The Manufacturing Plant Electrician Apprenticeship is overseen by the MA #1018 Metro Manufacturing Plant Electrician JATC. Follow the links below for information regarding the Manufacturing Plant Electrician Apprenticeship Program.

All Apprenticeship classes are open enrollment and open to the general public. Successful completion of Apprenticeship course alone, does not allow a student to take a state examination and gain a license for a journey-level card. In order to qualify for Oregon State license or journeyman exam, completion of both OJT and RT hours are required as outlined by the specific trade JATC. Additional Apprenticeship electives may be referenced on each programs JATC Approved Electives Lists and found throughout this schedule. All apprenticeship applicants must have an employer sponsor.  For OAR compliance, Apprentices MUST choose a letter bearing grade for credit classes. Information about Trade specific degrees is also available.

For more information on Apprenticeships please attend an orientation on the 1st Tuesday of every month from 12-1pm at the PCC Swan Island Trades Center, STC 120. Text books for these classes are at the Cascade Campus Bookstore.
