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 the Apprenticeship office at 541-245-7912. RCC supports
these 8,000-hour BOLI-ATD trades: tool and die maker, millwright and motor winder.
