National Standards for Carpentry Apprenticeship.
National Joint Carpentry Apprenticeship Committee, Washington, DC.; Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
The revised national standards for carpentry apprenticeship encompass standards for carpentry, millwright, and mill-cabinet apprenticeships. The standards were developed to provide guidelines for establishing local systems of apprenticeship as well as for advancing and improving existing systems. The term for carpentry, millwright, and mill-cabinet apprentices is set for 4 calendar years with a required 144 hours of related classroom instruction each year. Some of the other standards established for each of the three fields include qualifications of apprenticeship, selection of apprentices, ratio of apprentices to journeymen, apprenticeship agreements, probationary periods, apprentice wages, periodic examinations, work experience, and certificates of program completion. The local joint apprenticeship committees, equally representative of management and labor, are responsible for adapting the national standards to local use. Trade experience schedules, related instruction outlines, recommended textbooks, and reference materials are given for each field. 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.
