Apprenticeship Programs

LCCC partners with local organizations and employers to provide support and training in a variety of apprenticeship programs.

Registered Apprenticeship Programs


The Nord Advanced Technologies Center (NATC) in LCCC's Engineering and Information Technologies Division is an approved education provider for Registered Apprenticeship Programs.

Registered Apprenticeship Programs require a partnership effort between the company sponsoring the apprenticeship program, and the education provider implementing the education and training. Once the apprenticeship curriculum has been determined by the company and education provider, it must be registered.

State of Ohio Apprenticeship Programs are registered with the Ohio State Apprenticeship Council. Federal Apprenticeship Programs are registered with the U. S. Dept. of Labor.

For more information contact: Ms. Shirley Sloan, Apprenticeship Service Provider, (330) 884-7978 Shirley.Sloan@jfs.ohio.gov.  

Some examples of customized apprenticeship programs offered by the NATC, Engineering Technologies Division are as follows:

  • Automation
  • CNC Machining
  • Electrical
  • Electrical/Mechanical
  • I.B.E.W. Electrical
  • Maintenance
  • Millwright
  • Pipefitter
  • Tool and Die
  • Systems Repair

A Registered Apprenticeship Program (four year) must have a minimum of 576 class content hours, and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training which is the responsibility of the Company (2,000 hours/year for four years). While the majority of courses are college credit, customized, non-credit courses are an option for specific applications.

 

Associate of Technical Studies Degree in Electrical Trades

A partnership between the IBEW and LCCC

IBEW Local 129Lorain County Community College and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 129 have partnered to create a pathway to the Associate of Technical Studies degree in electrical trades for electricians working on their apprenticeship programs.

Completion of the intensive five-year apprenticeship program through the IBEW and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) will allow students to earn more than half the college credits – 36 credit hours – necessary for the associate degree.

The apprenticeship program prepares individuals to become inside wiremen, a type of electrical worker certified to install and maintain all types of electrical systems found in commercial and industrial facilities.

IBEW Local 129 selects students for the program and both the IBEW and LCCC will review and approve faculty for the technical training portion, which will occur in the local IBEW training facility.

General education courses are taught by LCCC instructors for those seeking to continue on and earn the associate degree. These courses are offered through the college’s usual means of delivering coursework including on-campus, on-line or through Interactive Video Distance Learning.
