ASCC-AWD Courses Upgraded and Approved by USDOL for Registered Apprenticeship

Courses in the Apprenticeship/Workforce Development (AWD) program offered by the Trades & Technology Division (TTD) of the American Samoa Community College (ASCC) are certified by the US Department of Labor (USDOL). Now, with new revisions approved by the USDOL, AWD courses in the professions of Automotive Technician, Carpenter or Welder can count towards a Registered Apprenticeship. Currently, participants in the late afternoon/early evening AWD courses, many of whom are working professionals seeking to increase their skill levels, work towards a Certificate of Completion for each individual course, which is accepted by the USDOL. By contrast, a Registered Apprenticeship certification indicates the completion of an entire training program in a particular area of expertise, after which the participant receives a Certificate of Completion of Apprenticeship conferred by USDOL to become a journeyman.
