Skilled Trades A.A.S.
Department: General Technology
Total Credit Hours: 64-65 credits
This degree program is for students who have completed an approved apprenticeship training program. It allows a union apprentice or journeyman to receive college credit for previously acquired knowledge, skills, and experience by applying those credits towards the associate's degree. The A.A.S. in Skilled Trades may enable students to pursue an advanced degree at a four-year institution in fields such as construction technology, construction management, or related areas.
The Skilled Trades Apprenticeship Training Program at SCC recognizes the core curriculum of any apprenticeship training program that is approved by the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training. If your training meets these standards, your journeyman status can be transferred to SCC as credit to satisfy a portion of the specific program requirements needed for an associate's degree. These 40 credit hours will be granted at the completion of all the other A.A.S. degree requirements.
