Apprenticeship and Training

ORS 660.020
Necessity for written agreement

  • transfer of agreement to another employer


Every apprentice and either the apprentice’s program sponsor or the local joint committee shall sign a written apprenticeship agreement on a form approved by the State Apprenticeship and Training Council or on a form to which the council chairperson may grant interim approval. The agreement shall be signed and registered with the council as soon as practicable, but not later than 45 days after the start of the apprenticeship.


When a training agent is unable or unwilling to fulfill its obligations under an apprenticeship agreement, the local joint committee may approve the transfer of the training agent’s obligation under the program standards to a subsequent approved training agent under the same program, with the consent of the apprentice. In such cases, it is not necessary to sign and register a new apprenticeship agreement, notwithstanding the requirements of subsection (1) of this section.
