About the Program
The Construction Trades, General Apprenticeship 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. If you are interested in becoming a registered apprenticeship in an Oregon state apprenticeship program, contact Cathy Pierson at 541-245-7912. RCC supports the following BOLI-ATD trades: HVAC/R, plumber and sheet metal (8,000-hour trades).
The AAS degree is a credential within Rogue Community College’s Construction Trades, General Apprenticeship Pathway. The pathway model provides statewide transfer opportunities, ladder-type certificate of completion, and an optional transfer path into a bachelor’s 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.
If students intend to transfer to SOU’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 curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. For a list of learning outcomes for this discipline or program, see www.roguecc.edu/Programs/LearningOutcomes.
Students are required to take a placement test to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined by placement test scores. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Credits earned in the successful completion of Career Pathways Certificates can be applied to other certificates and degrees in the Career Pathway.
