Registered Apprentice Initiative and New Hybrid Standards

The Minnesota Department of Labor, Apprenticeship Division approved the new hybrid standards for glazing in June 2011.  These new standards call for advancement based on a combination of “On the Job Learning” hours and assessments administered by the Glaziers Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC).  We are proud to not only be the first IUPAT training center to have approved hybrid standards, but also  the first organization of any trade to have approved hybrid standards in the State of Minnesota.  Apprentices will advance only after having passed an “Apprentice Advancement Review” done bi-annually by the JATC at the end of each term.   The staff is excited to work with this new type of training standards and is looking forward the other JATC’s adopting these new hybrid standards for training all our trades
