About Oregon Tradeswomen’s Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program

With a focus on apprenticeship, Oregon Tradeswomen’s Pathways to Success program offers the Trades and Apprenticeship Career Class (TACC); an 8-week, pre-apprenticeship training class that helps students prepare for a high skill, high wage career in construction. TACC introduces a variety of trades through field trips, guest speakers, hands-on work days, and other training opportunities.

Oregon Tradeswomen’s TAC Class is offered at no charge to participants thanks to generous funding from foundations, industry, and individual donors.

In addition to the core curriculum of our pre-apprenticeship program, students enrolled in the Trades and Apprenticeship Career Class have the option of extending their training commitment an additional 1-3 weeks to enroll in the Industrial Fabrication track or the Environmental Worker Training track.

Industrial Fabrication
This is a voluntary additional training track providing a targeted introduction to and hands-on experience with welding, machining, shop math, and blueprint reading in order to prepare students to enter skilled careers in the broad and booming manufacturing industry. This additional training track runs up to 3-weeks and will offer up to 80 hours of welding education. The successful completion of this training track meets the qualifications to take a Flux Core certification test.

Environmental Worker Training
This optional training track provides a 40 hour hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER) certificate, First Aid/CPR, and AED certificates at no cost to participants. It also includes an additional day of classroom education about environmental careers, such as deconstruction, hazardous waste abatement, and environmental remediation careers, as well as additional field trip days to sites where industry partners are doing this work.

TACC Class enrollment requirements

WE DRUG TEST

Oregon Tradeswomen’s pre-apprenticeship program complies with the industry standard of zero tolerance for drug use. This includes marijuana. Oregon Tradeswomen conducts two drug tests during our program, once on the first day of programming at the mandatory Orientation, and one random urine test during the period class is in session. If you test positive at either of these times, you will be dismissed from class and asked to re-enroll at a different time when you are able to pass the drug tests.
