Courses for this Program

About the Program

The Electrician Apprenticeship Technologies 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
or electricians holding a journey-level card. If you are interested in becoming a registered
apprentice in an Oregon state apprenticeship program, contact the Apprenticesip office at 541-245-7912.
RCC supports the following BOLI-ATD trades: limited maintenance electrician (4,000-hour trade);
inside electrician, limited manufacturing plant electrician, and sign maker/erector (8,000-hour
trades).

The AAS degree is a credential within Rogue Community College’s Electrician Apprenticeship
Pathway. The pathway model provides statewide transfer opportunities, ladder-type certificates of
completion, and an optional transfer path into a bachelor 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.
