The AAS degree in apprenticeship technologies provides career and technical training and supporting course work to prepare students for the rapidly changing global workplace. The program also helps Alaska industries by training workers who can meet increasing certification requirements which reflect complex business and industrial standards.
The apprenticeship technologies program is a 60-credit AAS degree delivered collaboratively through UAA, UAF and UAS. The practical integration of general course work and training for vocational-technical trades specifically reflects the commitment of the university to high-quality instruction and public service. Individuals earning this degree must complete a formal apprenticeship program and hold journey-level status in trades or occupations (including occupational license or occupational certificate) recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor's Training and Employment Administration.
Students declaring a major in apprenticeship technologies must present documentation of acceptance into an apprenticeship program meeting the requirements of the U.S. Department of Labor, Training and Employment Administration. The appropriate College of Rural and Community Development campus will review the documentation and may recommend up to 38 credits of course work following completion of all courses listed below. Students are encouraged to begin the required courses while completing the apprenticeship program to expand the quality and breadth of the program. Students who complete this program may be eligible to enroll in the BS technology degree program at UAA or the BT degree program at UAF.
