Academic and Career Advising
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.
The stagehand program trains apprentices in the art of constructing, setting up and moving of props and stage accessories. The work also includes all sound systems, lighting systems and overall facilities for any stage or movie production. This is a three-year program requiring 6,000 hours of on-the-job training and a minimum of 432 hours of related and supplemental instruction. The program follows a national curriculum which has been approved and registered with the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training and adopted by local sponsors.
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.
Apprenticeship students are expected to be employed while participating in related training course work.
Students who earn an AAS degree in Stagehand JATC Technology have the option to transfer into the Technology Management Bachelor Degree at Utah Valley University. UVU will accept up to 45 technical credits towards this degree.
Program Entry Requirements
All incoming apprentices must make application with and be approved by the JATC prior to registration for class.

Note: Apprenticeship programs are not eligible for financial aid.
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.
