|Apprenticeship Courses are designed for indentured apprentices under the Shelly-Maloney California Apprenticeship Standards Act. The Apprentice agreement states that the student will supplement on-the-job training with related classroom instruction during each year of apprenticeship. Apprentice classes meet three to eight hours per week and yield two to six units of credit. Joint Apprenticeship committees administering each program are composed of representation from labor, management, California State Division of Apprenticeship Standards, and Bakersfield College. These committees adopt state approved standards for operation and assure equal opportunity for applicants. Related training in apprenticable occupations, in addition to those listed below, may be offered as the need arises.
