NORTHWEST WASHINGTON PIPE TRADES APPRENTICESHIP COMMITTEEINTRODUCTIONThis document is an apprenticeship program standard. Apprenticeship program standards governhow an apprenticeship works and have specific requirements. This document will explain therequirements.The director of the Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) appoints the Washington StateApprenticeship and Training Council (WSATC) to regulate apprenticeship program standards.The director appoints and deputizes an assistant director to be known as the supervisor ofapprenticeship who oversees administrative functions through the apprenticeship section at thedepartment.The WSATC is the sole regulatory body for apprenticeship standards in Washington. Itapproves, administers, and enforces apprenticeship standards, and recognizes apprentices wheneither registered with L&I’s apprenticeship section, or under the terms and conditions of areciprocal agreement. WSATC also must approve any changes to apprenticeship programstandards.Apprenticeship programs have sponsors. A sponsor operates an apprenticeship program anddeclares their purpose and policy herein to establish an organized system of registeredapprenticeship education and training. The sponsor recognizes WSATC authority to regulateand will submit a revision request to the WSATC when making changes to an apprenticeshipprogram standard.Apprenticeships are governed by federal law (29 U.S.C 50), federal regulations (29 CFR Part 29& 30), state law (49.04 RCW) and administrative rules (WAC 296-05). These standardsconform to all of the above and are read together with federal and state laws and rulesStandards are changed with WSATC approval. Changes are binding on apprentices, sponsors,training agents, and anyone else working under an agreement governed by the standards.Sponsors may have to maintain additional information as supplemental to these standards. Whena standard is changed, sponsors are required to notify apprentices and training agents. If changesin federal or state law make any part of these standards illegal, the remaining parts are still validand remain in force. Only the part made illegal by changes in law is invalid. L&I and theWSATC may cooperate to make corrections to the standards if necessary to administer thestandards.Sections of these standards identified as bold “insert text” fields are specific to the individualprogram standards and may be modified by a sponsor submitting a revised standard for approvalby the WSATC. All other sections of these standards are boilerplate and may only be modifiedby the WSATC. See WAC 296-05-003 for the definitions necessary for use with these standards.Sponsor Introductory Statement (Required):The following Apprenticeship Standards for the development of apprentices in the variousbranches of the plumbing and pipefitting trades have been prepared by representatives ofWSATC-0094Page 2 of 3304/18/2019

NORTHWEST WASHINGTON PIPE TRADES APPRENTICESHIP COMMITTEEb.2.3.An analysis of female and minority participation in existing pipetrades apprenticeship programs indicates that:(1)Some, but not enough, females and minorities apply.(2)Still fewer females and minorities complete the application andmeet the minimum requirements.(3)On average, those who are eligible do well in the selectionprocess.(4)The solution to the problem lies in better notification to femaleand minority groups, closer liaison with responsible groupsinterested in the same endeavor, personal contracts, applicationfollow-up, and other affirmative procedures.(5)Adoption of this program indicates a good faith effort to increasethe number of females and minority groups who successfullymeet the minimum requirements established for admission to apipe trades apprenticeship.Part II, Scope:a.The program herein outlined consists of the following affirmative actsand may be altered and supplemented at a later date as experienceindicates and as personnel and funds permit. Any changes made bythe local Apprenticeship Committee shall become a part of thiswritten program as adopted at the local level.b.Recognizing that it would be a public disservice to develop secondrate journey level worker, the local Apprenticeship Committee willmaintain its standards of producing high quality journey level workerand will provide extra training when necessary to the extent that costand personnel permit.Part III, Elements of Recruitment ProgramThe local Apprenticeship Committee shall:WSATC-0094a.Participate in workshops, if available, designed to familiarize allconcerned with the apprenticeship system and current opportunities.b.Cooperate with school boards, community colleges and vocationalschools to develop programs, which prepare students for entrance intoapprenticeshipPage 10 of 3304/18/2019
