Academic and Career Advising

Program Description
Ironworkers erect structural steel, work with ornamental iron, reinforcing steel, rigging and machinery moving. Work is very physical, strenuous and precise. The JATC Ironworker is registered with the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training for additional registration and certification. The program is directed by the National Ironworker JATC and approved by the 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.

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