ITEC DISCLAIMER AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT

In registering to attend or participate in an ITEC class or classes, you as the registrant certify in registering for the class that you have read and will abide by the following.

PLAGIARISM

Student writing assignments, and written responses to discussions and quiz questions, should be entirely in their own words so as to avoid plagiarism.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU CAN TAKE YOUR STATE LICENSE EXAMINATIONS

As a new entrant to the HVAC profession, The State of Connecticut requires that, before you may sit for your license examination[s], you have first registered as an apprentice with the CT Department of Labor.  Failure to register as an apprentice will mean that you will not be able to sit for your license exam.

The state Department of Labor (DOL) administers Connecticut 's apprenticeship program, with advice from a 12-member State Apprenticeship Council. The council's members represent industry, labor, and the public. State law allows the council to adopt minimum standards of apprenticeship and related and supplementary instruction, issue certificates of completion to apprentices, and encourage employers to establish programs and individuals to participate in them.

The labor commissioner, with the council's advice, develops the program's overall work training standards and convenes business and labor groups to develop craft-specific training programs and apprenticeship terms. DOL's Office of Apprenticeship Training is responsible for these activities, for registering program sponsors and individual apprentices, and for ensuring that registered programs follow all program standards and terms (CGS 31-22m to -22t; Conn. Agency Regs. , 31-51d-1 to -12).

REGISTERING APPRENTICES

Apprentices register through approved employers. Apprentices must be at least 16 years old. They must pay DOL $25 when they register and each year until they complete the program and obtain a journeyman's license (if required for their trade) or withdraw from the program. Employers must annually pay a $30 sponsor fee for each apprentice.

When they register, apprentices receive a registration form that contains the agreement between the employer and apprentice, which spells out each party's responsibilities. These include the wage progression schedule, the trade category in which they will apprentice, and credits for previous experience. Apprentices also receive a monthly journal in which they must record their work and classroom instruction hours and in which their supervisor grades their progress.

You may obtain a CT Apprenticeship Registration form from the ITEC office, or from the ITEC website at [http://www.ctdol.state.ct.us/progsupt/appren/online/at-5.pdf]
