Apprenticeship Program

HawaiiCC's Apprenticeship Training Program provides related classroom instruction for apprentices registered in various apprenticeship programs. Classes are offered in the evenings or on Saturdays, and are currently related to training programs specific to the following building trades: carpenter, electrician, plumber, refrigeration and air-conditioning, mason, tile setter, roofer, sheet metal worker, and ironworker. Class instruction supports requirements established by State Apprenticeship Law and makes it possible for apprentices to comply with related instructional requirements in conjunction with on-the-job training requirements of each program. In addition, journeyworker-upgrade training courses are also accommodated for journeyworkers seeking skill-upgrading or self-improvement in their respective trades.

It is important to note that HawaiiCC is not involved with the application and selection of apprentices. This recruitment process is administered by separate Sponsor organizations and enrollment into apprenticeship classes are limited to individuals registered with the respective Sponsor. All Sponsors have established and registered apprenticeship programs that meet guidelines established by the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR) and the U.S. Bureau of Apprenticeship Training (USBAT).
