About the Program

The Industrial Mechanics and Maintenance Technology Apprenticeship certificate program is based
on the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) Oregon State Apprenticeship Training Council and
local Joint and Trade Apprenticeship Training Committee related training standards. It combines
full-time, on-the-job work experience with trade-related theoretical instruction. This certificate is
available only to BOLI-registered apprentices. If you are interested in becoming a registered apprentice
in an Oregon state apprenticeship program, contact Cathy Pierson at 541-245-7912. RCC supports
these 8,000-hour BOLI-ATD trades: tool and die maker, millwright and motor winder.

The certificate 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’s
of science degree at the Oregon Tech. It also provides additional access to related training courses
across the state for registered apprentices with aligned program outcomes, assessments and courses.

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
