Program Faculty
Generally, Apprenticeship faculty members are chosen from journeymen who are working in the field with a minimum of six years’ experience. All instructors are hired as adjunct on a semester-by-semester basis.

Program Description
The Facilities Maintenance Technology program provides students with a solid foundation in the basic fundamentals of Electricity, Industrial Motor Control, HVAC principles, Plumbing, Construction Maintenance, Pipefitting, and Welding. This is a three year program requiring 6,000 hours of on-the-job training as well as 432 clock hours of related instruction.

The College provides classroom-related and supplemental instruction for apprenticeship programs. Classes are held in the days, evenings, and Saturdays, depending on the program. The 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, students should contact their employers’ training director or the Apprenticeship Office.

The Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship is the federal registering agency for all Utah programs. For National credentials, students and sponsors need to be registered with the Federal Office of Apprenticeship, 125 South State Street, Suite 2412, Salt Lake City, UT 84138. Sponsors are encouraged to be registered with the Office of Apprenticeship. All electricians and plumbers must register with the Utah State Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing, (801) 530-6628.

Career Opportunities
Apprenticeship students are expected to be employed while participating in related training course work.

Estimated Time to Completion
Apprenticeship programs are composed of two parts: (1) on-the-job training is provided by a sponsor who exposes the apprentice to practical applications in all phases of a particular craft; (2) classroom-related instruction is 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 five years, depending upon the craft.

Advising Notes:


The classes listed are sequential and are to be taken in order. The courses are only offered once each year with odd number courses in the fall semester and even numbered courses in the spring semester. The math prerequisite does not fulfill any of the apprenticeship hours required. A student must pass each class with a C or higher grade to move on to the next level. All major FMTA course requirements must be taken to complete the apprenticeship core curriculum.

It is the students’ responsibility to understand the requirements for their chosen program of study and to examine each course description for details about the prerequisite classes. It is highly recommended that each student meet with the Apprenticeship Program Advisor prior to starting this program. The Program Advisor may be reached in Academic and Career Advising.

*It is recommended to those students seeking the AAS degree to complete the general education requirements in the summer semesters or the year following completion of all the Apprenticeship core courses.

Additional Program Note:


A Certificate in Facilities Maintenance Technology is also available. For more information about this certificate, contact the Apprenticeship Office, Taylorsville Redwood Campus, CT 274, (801) 957-4066.
