Foundational Elements of All Apprenticeships
Common Elements of Apprenticeships
As an apprentice, your wages are determined based on a percentage of the journeyperson rate for the trade being apprenticed. The wage schedule states the pay for the apprentice. Usually, apprentices start at 50 to 60 percent of the journey rate. Apprentices earn pay raises every 1,000 hours, or at about six-month intervals. This varies according to the sponsoring employer.
This document covers the description of how the apprenticeship will be conducted by the sponsor. It includes selection, hiring, evaluating and general guidelines.
Work Process Schedule:
Work process schedule is the on-the-job training part of the apprenticeship. The length of time spent in each area is determined by how complicated the skills are. Apprentices should plan to spend enough time in each area to become competent.
Related Training Curriculum:
This is the classroom part of the apprenticeship. Companies choosing LCC as their RTI provider enroll their apprentices in college courses. This course work gives the apprentice the necessary theoretical and technical knowledge needed to become a successful journeyperson. The National Apprenticeship and Training Standards require a minimum of 144 hours per year of Related Technical Instruction. This can be increased by trade and craft standards, or by program sponsors.
