Delta College offers required Trade Related Instruction Programs for apprentices and up-graders. These 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 (989) 686-9441.

Since many company apprenticeships programs are registered with the US Department of Labor, Office 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 journeyperson's card.
