TRAINING CENTER PROGRAMS
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, in partnership with Ingalls Apprentice School, works to meet the training needs of apprentices as outlined by the Bureau of Apprenticeship Training of the U.S. Department of Labor. A person who has completed an approved apprenticeship program may receive 30 semester hours toward an Apprentice Associate of Applied Science degree in Maritime Technology. The Ingalls Apprentice School programs are administered in the Hayley Reeves Barbour Maritime Training Academy located at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula. These programs are recognized as the backbone of a well-trained workforce. Therefore, every effort is made to provide each apprentice with opportunities to learn all the phases of a selected craft. This is done by job-rotation, a system that allows the apprentice to perform in the various job assignments within the particular craft. Training at the Ingalls Apprentice School is designed to provide an opportunity for men and women to master one of the many crafts of shipbuilding. The regular indentured apprentice programs consist of well-balanced curriculum of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. Following successful completion of the program, the apprentice is promoted to the status of journeyman.
