Skilled Trades

Students who complete a four- or five-year apprenticeship program approved by the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship (OA) can automatically articulate 46 college credits toward completion of this associate of applied science (AAS) degree.  This leaves only 18 credit hours of prescribed general education courses needed to earn the AAS degree.  Completion of this AAS degree also enables students with the option of transferring the credits from this program to the University of Northern Iowa to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Technology Management.

This program is designed for those who do not have college degrees and are interested in pursuing further opportunities in supervisory and management positions in the trades.
