Articulation Agreements with Apprenticeship Training Programs
The unique partnership between Massasoit Community College Canton and several major building trades training programs was initiated in 1998 when International Union of Operating Engineers Local 4 Training Director, Bill Mooney, was searching for expanded educational opportunities and credentials for members who completed their four-year apprenticeship program. Massasoit's Diesel Technology Program and the college's proximity ended his search less than a mile from the Local 4 training center.

Massasoit's then Applied Technology Division Chair, Syd Schmitchel, enthusiastically supported the partnership. The articulation review and implementation process was long and thorough, conforming to strict academic standards. It resulted in the only such partnership between building trades training programs and higher education in the Commonwealth.

Massasoit has since developed articulation agreements in Architectural Technology with Locals 7, 57, and 474 of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, and Ornamental Ironworkers; in Electronic Technology with Local 103 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, for both its electricians and telecommunications technicians; and is close to an agreement in Architectural Technology with the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, District Council 35.

These partnerships provide opportunities for career advancement for trained union workers and bring the perspective of experienced, skilled technicians to Massasoit classrooms. Its commitment to apprenticeship has made Massasoit a leading participant in the expanding dialog on apprenticeship/higher education articulation models at the annual Eastern Seaboard Apprenticeship Conference.
