Labor Code Division 2, Chapter 4, Article 3 provides “other on-the-job” training programs. Section 3093 specifies that this section applies only when voluntarily requested by the parties to a collective bargaining agreement or by an employer, an employer’s association, or a union, or its representative where there is no collective bargaining agreement.
The California Apprenticeship Council (CAC) and the Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS), in cooperation with the Department of Education, the Labor and Workforce Development Agency, and the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, may foster and promote on-the-job training programs other than apprenticeship in specified programs.
The DAS, when requested, may foster and promote voluntary on-the-job training programs in accordance with this section of law, and assist employers, employees, and other interested persons and agencies in the development and carrying out of the programs. These programs, where appropriate, may include related and supplemental classroom instruction offered and administered by state and local boards responsible for vocational education.
The DAS may contract with appropriate federal, state, and other governmental agencies. The term “on-the-job training” refers exclusively to training confined to the needs of a specific occupation and conducted at the jobsite for employed workers. The term “journeyperson” is defined.
