This is an excellent program for those individuals who have an interest in expanding their knowledge as it relates to their individual trade.
Areas of emphasis are national and state code, material requirements, practical mathematics required in the trade, and other essential subject areas.
Apprenticeships available: Electrician, HVAC, Automation Maintenance, Machinist, Plumbing, and Other (upon request).
Apprenticeship programs are composed of two parts: (1) on-the-job training provided by a sponsor who exposes the apprentice to practical applications in all phases of a particular craft, and (2) classroom-related instruction designed to provide the apprentice with knowledge of theoretical and technical aspects of their craft. Total completion of an apprenticeship program will take up to four years, depending upon the craft.
Bridgerland Technical College provides classroom-related and supplemental instruction for apprenticeship programs. Bridgerland Technical College neither provides on-the-job training nor acts as a sponsor for apprentices. Individuals must locate their own sponsors. For individual industry-sponsored programs, a student should contact their employer’s training director or the Apprenticeship Office. For additional information concerning the listed apprenticeship programs, please contact the Apprenticeship Office at (435) 750-3255.
Apprentices must register with the Utah State Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing, (801) 530-6628 or (801) 530-6436; dpl.utah.gov. The State of Utah rules can be viewed through the link: State of Utah Licensing – Electrical or State of Utah Licensing – Plumbing
The programs are divided into two 90-hour sessions beginning in September and ending in December, then beginning again in January and ending in April.

Individuals must be at least 16 years old to begin an apprenticeship program. Students younger than 18 years old must be registered with the Office of Apprenticeship. Students may complete up to two years of an apprenticeship program while completing their high school graduation requirements.
To increase the opportunity for success in Bridgerland Technical College apprenticeship programs, apprentices must take Bridgerland Technical College’s assessment test prior to enrolling in the program. (Basic reading, math, and measurements.) Math is required for all apprentices in Utah.
Please Note: A composite ACT score of 17 or a composite SAT score of 1210 can waive assessment requirements if taken no more than four years prior to enrollment.
Employment of machinists is projected to decline slowly by 3 percent over the 2006-16 decade because of rising productivity among these workers and strong foreign competition in the manufacture of goods. Machinists will become more efficient as a result of the expanded use of and improvements in technologies such as CNC machine tools, autoloaders, and high-speed machining. This allows fewer machinists to accomplish the same amount of work. Technology is not expected to affect the employment of machinists as significantly as that of some other production workers, however, because machinists monitor and maintain many automated systems. Due to modern production techniques, employers prefer workers, such as machinists, who have a wide range of skills and are capable of performing almost any task in a machine shop.
Despite the projected decline in employment, job opportunities for machinists should continue to be good as employers value the wide-ranging skills of these workers. Also, many young people with the necessary educational and personal qualifications needed to become machinists prefer to attend college or may not wish to enter production occupations. Therefore, the number of workers learning to be machinists is expected to be less than the number of job openings arising each year from the need to replace experienced machinists who retire or transfer to other occupations.
Employment levels in this occupation are influenced by economic cycles; as the demand for machined goods falls, machinists involved in production may be laid off or forced to work fewer hours. Employment of machinists involved in plant maintenance, however, often is more stable because proper maintenance and repair of costly equipment remains critical to manufacturing operations, even when production levels fall.
Bridgerland Technical College is open year round. Most programs are open-entry, which means you can start the program at the first of every month as long as there is space available in the program. Because of demand, some programs have waiting lists to get in to the program. Please contact Student Services for information on those programs with waiting lists and defined starting dates.
