The Stationary Engineer Apprenticeship is overseen by the MA #1040 Metro LME: Stationary Engineer JATC. Follow the links below for information regarding the Stationary Engineer 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.
