National Apprenticeship and Training Standards for the Sign, Pictorial Display, Electric Sign and Process Industry.
National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the Sign, Pictorial Display, Electric Sign, and Process Industry, Washington, DC.; Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
Revised national standards for sign, pictorial display, electric sign, and process apprenticeships were developed to provide guidelines to local employers and labor groups to be used in setting up and operating uniform and effective apprenticeship programs. The apprenticeship term is 10,000 hours or 5 years of on-the-job training subdivided into 10 6-month periods. This term includes a 500 hour probationary period and the required 144 hours of related classroom instruction per year. Some of the other basic recommendations which are itemized are qualifications for apprenticeship, selection of apprentices, ratio of apprentices to journeymen, apprentice agreement, apprentice wages, supervision of apprentices, and certificates of program completion. A local joint apprenticeship and training committee, equally representative of management and labor, should be responsible for the local adaptations and administration of the standards. Guidelines are given for adapting the national standards to local use. Work experience schedules provide outlines of work processes for apprenticeship training in the various branches of the trade. The standards are supplemented with the latest amendments and regulations of the various federal laws affecting apprenticeship, apprenticeship record keeping forms, and directories of regional and state apprenticeship agencies.
