"This is the saddest day in the 50 year history of UCC. Our hearts go out to every student, every employee, and every family touched by this tragedy.
"I want to thank all of our friends and neighbors who have dropped everything to help us. Over the next weeks, we will come together to accept offers of help and care so that we can assist one another."
-Dr. Rita Cavin
UCC Interim President
Take control of your future!
Position yourself for advancement opportunities in your industry of choice.
Become an apprentice and earn wages and benefits as an employee while attending related training classes. Completion of the apprenticeship program lays a solid foundation for earning a certificate or Associate of Applied Science degree.
Apprenticeship is not only on-the-job-training; it's a career that requires an investment of time, resources, and dedication to the learning process. Apprenticeship is sponsored and supported by the employer, but made successful by the dedication of the apprentice. Apprentices must assume responsibility for their education and look to the employer for support and guidance.
UCC’s apprenticeship programs are regulated by the BOLI-ATD.
Apprenticeship programs start with apprenticeship committees. All employers of apprentices can become involved with an ongoing committee or they can organize a committee for a new apprenticeship program. Apprenticeship committees decide their current and future training needs and develop guidelines for their own programs. Consultants from the Bureau of Labor and Industries, who are familiar with industry standards and related training guidelines, work with the committees to develop their programs.
Local apprenticeship committee members represent both labor and management of particular companies and work with the college to implement the apprenticeship programs.
