1-1. PURPOSE

The Department of the Army Facilities Engineer Apprentice Program is intended to as-sure the use of up-to-date training concepts and the establishment of high standards of selection and performance for employees entering skilled blue collar trades in Facilities Engineer organizations. It is a part of an overall Army effort to improve technical skills and to encourage pertinent training for all levels of trades personnel. The overall objective is to improve performance and thus support effective maintenance of Government real property. The apprentice program will-

a. Establish apprenticeship as one means of maintaining the Facilities Engineer trade skill base.

b. Support the overall technical training effort to upgrade existing skills.

c. Provide a basis for upward mobility in blue collar trade fields.

d. Support personnel and recruitment planning for effective replacement of losses in the skilled workforce.

1-2. SCOPE

a. The program applies to Army installations designated to participate in the apprentice training program. Designation is by the sponsoring agency, the Office of the Chief of Engineers (OCE), HQDA, in cooperation with major commands.

b. Funds for program operation are budgeted by OCE. Staffing is established on a separate OCE Table of Distribution and Allowances (TDA). Use of centralized funds and spaces for operation of activity programs is authorized by separate OCE directive establishing an intercommand allocation system based on command requirements.

c. I I The initial selection of trades to be apprenticed will be expanded in future years, in accordance with need and availability of resources.

> d. This plan may be used by installations to expand installation apprentice programs beyond the scope of program resources allocated by the program sponsor, in the following ways:

(1) To increase the number of apprentices in covered trades. Such increases, wilt. however, utilize local manpower and fund resources. (See also paragraph 1-11, Program Registration. )

(2) To place under apprenticeship Facilities Engineer trades not covered herein, by means of trades training schedules in the format of existing schedules. These, of course, must first be approved through channels. (See also Paragraph 1-11, Program Registration.) <

1-3. GENERAL

a. The DA Facilities Engineer Apprentice Program is established to obtain the general benefits accruing to the employee, community, and agency from the use of apprenticeship to build trade competence. The program is based on varying local labor requirements and provides for command participation in the designation of training sites and the selection of trades.

b. Responsibility for program operation is assigned to installation commanders to ensure responsiveness to local needs and assure individual attention to apprentices. Reasonable flexibility in scheduling and conducting training is provided to adjust to installation workloads and afford sufficient attention to the development of apprentices.

c. Individuals assigned authority to operate the program will be carefully selected. Apprentices will be instructed by persons who are familiar with pertinent training techniques and are thoroughly competent in the theory, practices, and skills of their respective trades.

d. Outlines of related instruction will be adapted to the needs of individual apprentices within guidelines for specific trades. When supplemental training is considered necessary, the Installation Joint Apprentice Committee should consult cooperating educational institutions for assistance in locating additional text materials and teaching aids to fit particular training needs. Work experience will be scheduled to provide sufficient exposure to trade requirements and techniques.

e. At the same time, the urgent needs of Facilities Engineer organizations for competent trade workers precludes unnecessary or marginal training. Time will not be spent providing training in skills already possessed by an apprentice. In this regard, approved procedures permit shortening of the apprenticeship period and modification of training plans when related trades experience is already possessed by candidates. Thus, Installation Joint Apprentice Committees are expected to omit training phases not actually needed for development of individuals to journeyman capability. Trades helpers, vocational school graduates, and other partially qualified personnel should be utilized to replenish needed Facilities Engineer trade skills. (Advanced placement is discussed in para 1-7g.)

f. Modifications of standards.

(1) Proposals for modification of this plan or any of its appended training standards will be forwarded through channels to the staff proponent. Changes having general applicability will be accomplished by change to this regulation. Requests for change which merit consideration only for local application will be treated as individual requests for waiver of a provision of the overall plan.

(2) All changes or waivers will be accomplished by the staff proponent subject to approval of the registration agency.

(3) All parties concerned, including affected apprentices, will be promptly notified of approved changes to the plan.

> g. This plan is a guideline and reference which may be used by installations in the development of additional apprentice programs under provisions of CPR 410.C. Such programs will be identified under the name of the installation and may incorporate modifications subject to approval under provisions of CPR410. C <

1-6. PROVISIONS OF APPRENTICESHIP

a. Qualifications.

> (1) Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. No maximum age may be prescribed; however, participation in an apprentice program is more appropriate for persons who expect to continue Federal service for a reasonable period and whose service expectancy promises a satisfactory return on training investment.

(2) Qualifications rating of in service applicants and outside applicants hired under excepted appointment authorities will be in accordance with US Civil Service Commission Handbook X118C, Job Qualification System for Trades and Labor Occupations.

(3) Selection of employees who already possess substantial qualifications in a trades or craft occupation or in other skilled, technical, or specialized fields is not appropriate. <

b. Apprentice ratio. Each employer, as a minimum, may employ one apprentice per trade if there is assurance of adequate capability for supervision and instruction of the apprentice. Additional apprentices may be employed in ratio of one apprentice for every three journeymen working in the trade I I .

c. Term of apprenticeship. The term of apprenticeship is related to the trade as set forth in respective training standards. The total term will be divided into progress periods of 6 months (approximately > 1,040 < hours) each of on the job and related instruction.

d. Apprentice agreement. Apprentices and if a minor their parent or guardian will sign a written agreement indicating terms and conditions of employment and training. The agreement will be signed and countersigned by the employer.

e. Pay of apprentices.

> (1) A progressive rate of pay will be established for each 6month increment of apprenticeship. Beginning and successive pay levels will be set in accordance with FPM Supplement 5321. S 114, Federal Wage System, Special Pay Plan for Apprentices and Shop Trainees.

(2) Program funding does not provide for overtime. Employers will not obligate central fund authorizations for overtime payment without prior approval of the program sponsor. Utilization of apprentices in a manner to require such payment is normally inappropriate, particularly in the first half of the term of apprenticeship.

(3) Funds for hazard pay of apprentices are not provided from the central fund. Assignment of apprentices in hazardous work situations will be avoided whenever practicable. <

1-7. EMPLOYMENT AND TENURE

a. Employment. Apprentices will be locally employed in spaces provided from the sponsor's TDA. Spaces are not subject to reduction or reassignment by the employers.

b. Appointment status. Appointment status for apprentices depends upon the appointment authority under which they enter the program. Appointment categories for apprentices are the same as for the other Federal employees. Current employees reassigned to apprentice positions retail the appointment status they bring to the program.

c. Competitive standing. In accordance with US Civil Service Commission and Civilian Personnel Regulations for establishment of competitive areas, apprentices will be placed in a common competitive area with other employees of the command; however. they will be placed in a separate competitive level established for employment of trainees under formal training agreements.

d. Recruitment. Apprentices may be competitively assigned from other positions within the work force or newly recruited through any of the employer's established employment programs.

e. Selection and placement.

(1) Qualification standards for selection and placement will apply equally to candidates from all sources. Final selection of apprentices will be as recommended by the Apprentice Committee in consultation with supervisors in the apprenticed trades.

> (2) Apprenticeship Committees are expected to assess candidate potential in terms of anticipated return on training investment commensurate with the substantial length of training time in an apprentice program. A potential for continued service after graduation that is at least three times the length of the training period is a reasonable expectation. <

> (3)< Candidates will be referred for Committee selection by the employer's Civilian Personnel Office.

> (4) < Current employees whose placement in the program would otherwise result in a salary or pay reduction are entitled to2year salary or pay retention provided they meet the criteria of 5 USC 5345 (see Federal Personnel Manual Supplement 9002.Book 531, S54).

f. Probationary period. The official probationary period for apprentices is one year, as for other employees. Apprentices in the probationary period of their appointment may be separated without undue formality in accordance with FPM 315. Employees with competitive status assigned to the apprentice program do not revert to a probationary appointment status.

g. Advanced placement.

> (1) All apprentices will be initially placed at the beginning level of apprenticeship. Apprentices who possess pertinent experience or training may be advanced to a higher level upon demonstration of ability to apply claimed experience and training to job performance. The apprentice committee will evaluate performance in the trade against the specifications of the training plan and, when indicated, will credit personal job qualifications toward advanced placement in accordance with instructions at Figure 1-1.

(2) Credit toward advanced status will be extended in phases of six months each.

(3) Credit toward advanced status will be applied at completion of the initial six month phase of apprenticeship. The number to be credited will be added to the phase just completed in determining the new level of apprenticeship to be assigned.

(4) Advanced status may not exceed one half the term of apprenticeship. <

h. Journeyman status. Individuals successfully completing apprenticeship will be placed in full performance positions at Step 2 of the established journeyman grade, within the employer's own established position structure. The apprentice space thus released may revert to the central OCE pool of spaces.

i. Reduction in force.

(1) Reduction in the apprentice force may occur if the sponsoring agency should withdraw staffing authorizations according to its determination of system wide skill needs within the respective trade disciplines. The reductions will be distributed by trade among the major commands which will then withdraw manpower spaces from subordinate training sites.

(2) Apprentices will compete for retention within their competitive level in accordance with the employer's established reduction in force procedures. Apprentices will not be reassigned for RIF protection purposes to apprentice positions in another trade. Journeyman employees of the employer's regular workforce may not be extended retreat rights to apprentice positions when reductions in the regular workforce occur.

j. Reemployment. Reemployment will be offered to laid-off apprentices before new apprentices are employed in the same trade.

k. Reassignment between trades. When deemed appropriate by management, apprentices may be reassigned from one Facilities Engineer trade to another. Credit may be granted by the Apprentice Committee for pertinent classroom work and on the job training received in the initial apprentice assignment. Reassignment is authorized when all the following conditions are met:

(1) The apprentice has served at least a 90 day trial period in the initial assignment.

(2) The action is determined by concerned shop supervisors and program administrators to be in the best interests of the service and the apprentice agrees in writing to the reassignment. (If the apprentice is a minor, written consent of a parent or guardian is required.)

(3) An untilled apprentice position exists in the new trade and prescribed ratio of apprentices to journeymen are not exceeded.

(4) No more than 6 months (> 1,040 < hours) of training time will be lost.

l. Reassignment between installations. Apprentices may be reassigned to a new installation (employer) when the new employer has an ongoing apprentice training capability and when conditions set forth above for reassignment are met. The apprentice will complete unfinished phases of classroom work or training upon transfer.

m. Progression. Advancement will occur at the successful completion of each > 1,040 < hour training period, when the apprentice has mastered work processes and knowledge requirements outlined for the period and the Joint Apprentice Committee has recommended advancement.

n. Temporary retention or removal.

(1) The Joint Apprentice Committee may authorize retention in standing for up to 90 days for purposes of further training in a given phase. In extenuating circumstances, after thorough evaluation of progress and counseling of an apprentice, an additional 90 day extension may be given. In turn, the total term of apprenticeship may be extended, consistent with overall performance record, to facilitate attainment of full journeyman trade capability. Retention in standing or extension of the term of an apprenticeship will be limited to a total of not more than 6 months.

(2) Apprentices whose progress falls seriously behind established requirements may be terminated at their own request or upon recommendation of the Apprentice Committee. If this failure to meet requirement occurs within the established probationary period, dismissal from employment should result unless the apprentice holds other rights from continuous Federal employment preceding his/her apprentice assignment. Apprentices to be terminated from the program after completion of a probationary period will be reassigned, reduced in grade or pay, or removed, in accordance with established adverse action procedures (CPR 752). Notices of decision on proposed adverse actions will be signed by the commander of the employing installation. The employer will notify the Army staff proponent, HQDA(PECMD), Wash. DC 20314,through prescribed channels of apprentice removals or withdrawals from the program.

1-8. EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

a. I I Recruitment, placement, assignment, and development of apprentices and final utilization in journeyman capacity will be provided entirely on the basis of individual fitness and merit, without regard to race, color, sex, religion, age, national origin, or other factors which of themselves have no bearing on job performance.

> b. In accordance with Department of Army EEO policy, consideration of recruitment sources will take into account the need for full representation of minorities and women among applicants, especially where their representation in a trade is substantially lower than their availability in the workforce and/or the recruiting area. <

1-9. OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY

The employer will instruct apprentices in safe and healthful work practices and will ensure that apprentices are trained in facilities and environments which are in compliance with either the Occupational Safety and Health Standards promulgated by Secretary of Labor under Public Law 91596, December29, 1970, or State or agency standards which have been found to be at least as effective as the Federal standards.

1-10. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION

a. Official performance rating. DA Form1052, Employee Performance Rating, will be made consistent with other Wage Grade employees. Ratings will be assigned by the apprentice supervisor using feeder data described below.

b. Performance appraisal and evaluation.

(1) Performance appraisal and evaluation of apprentice progress will be performed by the responsible shop supervisor on a continuous basis. Evaluation will be the basis for further job assignment and instruction to assure balanced exposure to aspects of the trade most needed for the apprentice's current development. Procedures considered necessary for work scheduling and assignment may be locally established.

(2) Each apprentice's progress will be formally evaluated quarterly. The evaluation will be recorded on DA Form 4542-R,Facilities Engineer Apprentice Program Appraisal, (fig. 12) which will be initiated by the apprentice supervisor. This form will be reviewed by the Apprentice Committee which will recommend advancement (or other appropriate action).

(3) Local reproduction of DA Form4542-R on 8" 10 1/2'' (head to foot) paper is authorized.

(4) DA Form 1052, employee annual performance ratings, will be consistent with the evaluations recorded on DA Form 4542-R.

1-11. PROGRAM REGISTRATION

a. Approval of local program. Each installation participating in the program will secure program registration from the Registration Agency by submission of a letter to HQDA(PECMD) in the format shown at figure 1-3.Expansion of programs at a later date to include additional apprenticed trades will be registered by submission of a letter in the format at figure 1-4. > Locally developed schedules (i.e., trades not published herein)require the following addition to the statement in figure 1-4. "This is (these are) a locally apprenticed trade(s) not currently published in DA CPR 971.1." <

b. Registration of apprentices. Signed individual apprentice agreements will be forwarded to HQDA (PECMD), which will obtain national registration from the registration agency. Apprentice agreements will be executed in the format at figure 1-5 and forwarded under cover letter in the format at figure 1-6. > Apprentices employed in the employer's own spaces (i.e., spaces not provided by the sponsor) require the following addition to the statements in figure 1-6. "This(these) apprentice(s) is (are) not covered by central program resources but is (are)employed in the employer's own manpower space(s). <

c. Withdrawal of apprentice registration. When an apprentice resigns or is removed from the program, the employing installation will request cancellation of the apprentice's registration by letter in the format at figure1-7.

d. Request for certification. When an apprentice satisfactorily completes a program, the employing installation will forward a letter in the format at figure 1-8, announcing completion and requesting issuance from the registration agency of a formal Certificate for Completion of Apprenticeship. When received, the certificate will be countersigned by the commander (or representative) and designated program officials and presented to the graduate apprentice on an appropriate occasion.

e. Program records. Individual record files will be maintained on apprentices for a period of 5 years beyond the completion or termination of apprenticeship. This material must be protected in the same manner as material in an official personnel file. In addition, placement records pertaining to rating processes and selection or non-selection will be retained for a 5-year period. Individual record files will include, but not be limited to-

(1) Apprentice agreement.

(2) Journeyman job description of the apprenticed trade (target job description).

(3) DA Form 1052.

(4) DA Form 4542-R.

(5) Placement record, including basis for any advanced standing granted.

(6) Copies of official correspondence relating to the apprentice (e.g., letter of registration).

1-12. ADVISORY SERVICES

a. Contacts with the National Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT),Employment and Training Administration, US Department of Labor, will be made through DA channels. Commands are authorized direct contact with State and regional officials of the BAT for program advice and assistance. A list of regional BAT offices is at figure 1-9.

b. Institutions providing related formal instruction are resources of information to both apprentices and program administrators on matters pertaining to apprentice training and education.

1-13. SCHEDULES OF TRAINING

a. Training standards for the several Facilities Engineer trades are set forth as individual schedules in appendixes. These are separately numbered to facilitate the future addition of other trade schedules.

b. Schedules are divided into general skill elements for which standard, maximum, and minimum training periods are shown. These categories are further divided by work tasks which are representative of those typically encountered in a trade. Examples:

A. GENERAL TRADE ORIENTATION: (Skill element).

1. Care and Use of Tools (Task).

2. File, set, and gum saws (Task).

3. Sharpen chisels, planes, augers, etc. (Task).

B. SELECT AND GRADE LUMBER, PANELING, ETC: (Skill element).

1. General classification (Task).

c. The sequence of work/training assignments will be locally determined in accordance with the kinds of work available for assignment. Schedules will be planned to introduce processes at the basic level and advance progressively to more complex tasks. Where advanced standing has been credited to an apprentice, the scheduling will omit the tasks and skill levels for which credit is granted.

d. Level of skills possessed by apprentices will be evaluated as an aid to scheduling work training. Complexity of work assignments should be related not only to the tasks required by the training schedule but also to the degree of skill and ability shown by the apprentice. Those work processes and training exposures intended to round out the knowledge and skill expected of an apprentice at periodic progress points will be emphasized. A time-phased guide to general qualifications evaluation is at figure 1-10.

e. Allowances may be made for differences in facilities, equipment, and workload among the several participating installations. Adjustments in training time per skill element, within the maximum and minimum allotments, are authorized. Substitutions of subordinate work tasks are permitted. For example, where specific equipment outlined for repair is lacking, an installation may assign similar work substantially meeting the same skill requirements. Tasks not included in a schedule but recognized as part of a trade may be added.

1-14. RELATED STUDY CURRICULUM

a. The related study outlined for the respective trades provides for flexibility within prescribed subject areas. The program is structured by general categories of subject matter (typical course titles are shown) from which particular studies may be selected to meet the formal training needs of individuals.

b. Commands may provide related formal training by one or a combination of the following:

(1) Area colleges and vocational schools

(2) Adult Education Departments of community high schools.

(3) Command furnished formal classroom training.

(4) Commercial correspondence study programs conducted by schools approved by the Department of Labor to support apprentice training programs. (Example provided at figure 1-11.).

> c. Apprentices will be enrolled promptly and the work monitored to ensure that related study keeps pace with developmental work assignments.

d. The 144 hours per year provided in the training schedules for related study are allotted for classroom time in school programs or its equivalent in correspondence programs. Supporting study (homework) is the responsibility of the apprentice. <

> e. < Classroom time allowance is designed to yield about 39 semester units of school credit or its equivalent during a 4-year apprenticeship term, based on 45 classroom hours for each three unit course. Schooling not measurable in unit hours will be measured in clock hours or other appropriate basis to fix the number of courses required. The ratio between prescribed classroom hour allotments for the several curriculum categories will be generally preserved, regardless of computation of training time.

> f. It is the employer's responsibility to arrange related study programs so that class time required will in the aggregate reasonably correspond with schedule time. Duty time authorized for schooling will be that required by the particular course schedule in which the apprentice is engaged. Duty time allowances for related study which are not thus supported are not authorized.

g. Apprentices may attend formal training courses in addition to assigned related study programs when attendance is authorized by the Apprentice Committee. However, prior approval will be obtained from the program sponsor for expenditure of central funds in connection with such training. <

> h. < Apprentices may request advance credit for previous formal training as well as for related work experience. The Apprentice Committee in consultation with a representative of cooperating school authorities is authorized to grant such formal training credit. In all cases, the credit must be based on demonstrated mastery of the course content.

Evaluation of Qualifications For Advanced Standing

The placement standing of an apprentice will normally be determined approximately 90 days after entry into apprenticeship. This period provides time to observe the aspects of the apprentice's work performance. In cooperation with personnel specialists and trade experts, Installation Joint Apprentice Committees will determine the appropriate phase of apprenticeship into which a candidate for advanced standing will be placed.

A general guide to evaluation of qualifications is set forth below. It uses excerpts from selected apprentice training schedules to illustrate this technique, which is essentially a job element examining process applied to the candidate's trade related background. Examples shown are hypothetical evaluations of candidate qualifications against selected skill objectives in apprentice training plans.

(5) Equipment repair records. Familiarity with work assignment sheets, parts lists, etc; is familiar with The Army Maintenance Management System. Lacks knowledge of specific shop procedures.

Training schedule calls for a total of approximately 31 days training in this element. Related experience background of the candidate exceeds the required time. On the other hand, it lacks the specificity required for performance in the particular trade. In the judgment of the Apprentice Committee, time required to appropriately update and adjust the applicant's experience in this element would be only one fourth of that required for a novice. In such a case, advance credit (three quarters) may be allowed for the apprentice in this specific element.

(b) Sample Element Evaluation. Maintenance and repair: 1984 hours,248 days (see (5) above). Subelements include: Remove stoppages; stop leaks; repair/renew valves, faucets, connections, sprinkler heads; repair and reseat fixtures; repair and calibrate mechanical meters.

(1) Remove stoppages. Negligible experience in this element. Exposure limited to minor home plumbing and equipment maintenance.

(2) Stop leaks. Applicant has past equipment repair experience, to include stop work as well as maintenance and repair of farm machinery, implements, and irrigation systems while growing up on a farm. This experience has given a good knowledge of equipment repair problems, including problems of leakage. Applicant is thoroughly familiar with gaskets, seals, and stop leak chemicals, and has had substantial work with pipes and fittings carrying both water and fuels.

(3) Repair/renew valves, faucets, connections, sprinkler heads. This experience element is closely related to (2) above. Applicant has substantial related experience but has not worked with a full range of plumbing components and systems.

(4) Repair, reseat fixtures. Applicant's experience is general and less relevant to this element; substantial training time will be required.

(5) Repair and calibrate mechanical meters. Related experience has provided a general familiarity with element requirements; e.g., getting irrigation flow, repair of fuel pumps and water pumps; familiarity with farm machinery gauges and valves. However, experience is not specific to the trade.

(c) The training schedule for the element requires 248 days (approximately 11 months) of work experience. The committee would translate into a time value the degree to which this requirement is met by comparing both the amount of the apprentice's related experience and the degree of its applicability to each of the tasks of the training schedule element.

(b) Sample Element Evaluation. Millwork and cabinet making: 720 hours, 90 days (see (10) above).

(1) Work elements include: layout, saw, form, assembly tables, benches, cabinets, wood fixtures using clamps, table saws, jointer, bandsaw, jigsaw, drill press, tennon and mortice machines, planer, router, shaper, lathe, belt and disc sander.

(2) The evaluated individual successfully completed a shop course in high school and woodworking courses in a community college. The individual's hobby is woodworking in a home workshop, making "whatnots" and designing and building model houses. Is accustomed to close work and fine tolerances in shaping, smoothing, and assembling wood. Limitations are: The past range of products fabricated is narrow and most experience was gained with only hand tools and handheld power tools; orientation to machine and bench equipment is limited to formal school courses.

(3) Training schedule calls for approximately 90 days' experience in this element. Individual's overall experience meets the time requirement but its breadth and depth are limited. Substantial training in bench and machine shop practices and shop safety is required. In the judgment of the Apprentice Committee, well over half of the time required to train a novice in this element would be required to round out the individual's experience to a full journeyman capability. In such a case, the Committee may decide to advance only one-fourth credit in the element.

B. DETERMINING OVERALL STANDING OF THE APPRENTICE.

1. Candidate's qualifications will be evaluated against each major skill element of a training schedule. Credit will be specifically advanced or withheld for each element.

2. Computation of credit will be as follows:

Step 1: Determine the proportion of credit allowable for each element(e.g., one-eighth, one-fourth, one-half).

Step 2: Multiply the standard hour content of each element by the advanced credit factor (e.g., 720 hours x = 180 hours).

Step 3: Add the results of Step 2 for each element to determine total credit in terms of training hours equivalency.

> Step 4: Divide the sum of hours obtained in Step 3 by 1,040 to obtain the number of apprenticeship phases or increments to be credited. Round quotient to the nearest increment. <
