Apprentice Guidelines and Procedures for Receiving College Credits

In order to assist apprentices and members in furthering their educational goals, the Training Center has worked with the National College Credit Recommendation Service (National CCRS) to have our apprenticeship courses evaluated and recommended for transferable college-level credit.

All college credit recommendations are based upon coursework completed. No credit can be recommended for courses that have not been fully completed or for which a failing grade has been issued.

Credit is given per the recommendations of the National CCRS. These credit recommendations are listed publicly and may be found on www.nationalccrs.org.
