APPRENTICESHIP AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR TRUCK MECHANICS, A GUIDE FOR THE AMERICAN TRUCKING INDUSTRY.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGES, THE CONTINUED GROWTH OF THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY, AND A PERSISTENT SHORTAGE OF SKILLED MECHANICS HAS MADE IT NECESSARY FOR THE INDUSTRY TO HAVE A MORE DETAILED AND PLANNED TRAINING PROGRAM TO MAINTAIN EFFICIENCY AND QUALITY. THESE STANDARDS ARE INTENDED TO GOVERN THE EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING OF APPRENTICES IN THE RESPECTIVE BRANCHES OF THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY. LOCAL APPLICATION IN STATES HAVING STATE APPRENTICESHIP AGENCIES MAY REQUIRE ADAPTATION TO MEET THE STANDARDS OF APPRENTICESHIP IN SUCH STATES. THE STANDARDS PROVIDE SAMPLE WORK PROCESSES FOR 8,000-HOUR ON-THE-JOB TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR TRUCK MECHANICS, TRUCK MECHANICS (HEAVY-DUTY-EQUIPMENT MECHANIC), TRUCK AND TRAILER BODY MECHANICS, AND TRUCK MECHANICS-DIESEL, AND A 6,000-HOUR PROGRAM FOR TRUCK MECHANICS-PAINTER. EACH PROGRAM REQUIRES A MINIMUM OF 144 HOURS OF RELATED INSTRUCTION FOR EACH YEAR OF TRAINING. ALL APPRENTICES EMPLOYED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE STANDARDS ARE SUBJECT TO A PROBATIONARY PERIOD FOR THE FIRST 500 HOURS OF EMPLOYMENT. THE RATIO OF NO MORE THAN ONE APPRENTICE TO THREE JOURNEYMEN IS RECOMMENDED TO ASSURE PROPER SUPERVISION AND TRAINING. SOME OF THE OTHER STANDARDS COVER QUALIFICATIONS AND SELECTION FOR APPRENTICESHIP, CREDIT FOR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE, HOURS OF WORK, APPRENTICESHIP AGREEMENT, SUPERVISION, CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION, AND OFFICIAL PROGRAM APPROVAL. SAMPLE FORMS ARE PROVIDED FOR USE IN ESTABLISHING AN APPRENTICESHIP RECORDKEEPING SYSTEM. (HC)
