Award

Associate of Applied Science degree

The Skilled Trades degree allows students who complete USDOL-BAT-approved* apprenticeship training programs to convert the apprenticeship training into college credits. This program is designed for those who do not have college degrees and are interested in pursuing further opportunities in supervisory and management positions.

Students who complete four- or five-year BAT-approved programs can automatically articulate their training course work. For four- and five-year apprenticeship programs, students can receive 30 credit hours toward the 64-credit-hour degree. If students have completed the OJT (On-the-Job Training) associated with the apprenticeship training, then another 16 credit hours of internship can be waived. This leaves only 18 credit hours of general education core courses needed to earn an associate of applied science degree.

Career opportunities: advancement opportunities in supervisory and management-level positions.
