Apprenticeship Programs


The College administers the Apprenticeship Training Program sponsored by the Guam Power Authority, Guam Hotel & Restaurant Association, Guam Technical Institute, and individual employers. These programs are approved and registered with the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training, United States Department of Labor.

During the term of apprenticeship, the apprentice learns a craft or trade through formal on-the-job training (OJT) under close supervision of a skilled worker or journey worker and through related classroom instruction at the College. In general, an apprentice works at an actual job setting with an employer during the day and attends related classes at the College during the evenings and/or Saturdays.

The terms of apprenticeship are determined by the occupation in which the student is being trained. Training is available in the following occupational trades:
