Apprenticeship Trade Related Instruction Programs

Delta College offers required Trade Related Instruction Programs for apprentices and up-graders in the industrial trades, building trades, and maintenance trades from the tri-county and surrounding areas. Trade Related Instruction Programs are designed with the cooperation of industry and provide the instruction to strengthen the theoretical knowledge in each trade area. The combination of related instruction and on-the-job experience is essential in order to provide a complete program to train skilled personnel for the trades. Courses are offered during the evening only. The scheduling and registration for courses is the responsibility of the Skilled Trades Department; therefore, any inquiry about a particular class should be made directly to them by phoning (989) 686-9476 or 686-9594.

Since many company apprenticeship programs are registered with the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training, it is imperative that the registration of these courses be coordinated by the local plant apprenticeship coordinator and the College Skilled Trades Department. All Trade Related Instruction is subject to change per agreement with the participating employer and Delta College. Delta College does not issue a journeyman's card only a completion certificate.

The following program is representative of the typical Trade Related Instruction Programs Delta College offers in conjunction with area employers. Employers, however, are not restricted to just these programs and many elect to modify our programs to meet their specific needs. Employers desiring more information on Delta’s Trade Related Instruction Programs should call the Skilled Trades Program Manager at (989) 686-9594 or 686-9476.
