Apprentice Training: Machine Trades

A.A.S. Degree - Career Program
No Change Program

The Associate in Applied Science Degree Program compliments apprentice training by adding theoretical learning in the technologies to the applied learning received on the job. In addition, the degree program offers an academically and personally enriching experience through a series of courses in the liberal arts and sciences.

Up to 12 college credit hours may be awarded toward the degree for on-the-job training performed during the apprenticeship. These credit hours will be awarded only after completion of the MCC program of study and submission of the journeyman certificate. The amount of credit will be based upon the recommendation of the Apprentice Training Evaluation Committee.

Students interested in this program may also be interested in the Precision Machining program.
