Courses for this Certificate

About the Program

The Mechanical Maintenance Apprenticeship certificate 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 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 4,000-hour BOLI-ATD trades: airframe/power plant technician and boiler operator.

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
