The DSTA program is designed for training Mechanics in both installation and service work.

The program is designed with related theory and hands-on application for maximum benefit for the student. This is a four-year program requiring 8,000 hours of on-the-job-training as well as 576 minimum hours of related instruction. Most sponsors of this program are also registering with the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training for certification.

The College provides classroom-related and supplemental instruction for apprenticeship programs. Classes are held in the days, evenings, and Saturdays, depending on the program. The College neither provides on-the-job training nor acts as a sponsor for apprentices. Individuals must locate their own sponsors. For individual industry-sponsored programs, students should contact their employers’ training director or the Apprenticeship Office.
