Expert Guidance from Enrollment to Certification
Once an individual agrees to enroll in a program, AJAC works closely with the employer and employee to go over responsibilities, on-the-job training competencies, and college-level classes.
Apprentices are enrolled in AJAC’s classes taught at local community/technical colleges and/or online. Classes are college accredited, held one night a week for four hours. Most apprentices have the summer quarter off.
Apprentices work full-time as paid employees throughout the duration of the apprenticeship while receiving one-on-one mentorship and wage progressions.
Apprentices submit their on-the-job training hours each month through AJAC’s online Apprentice Tracking System. Employers review these hours and approve them on a monthly basis.
Once an apprentice has met their required on-the-job training hours and passed all of their college-level classes, they will receive a journey-level certificate through the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries.
