Adult education assists with the related and supplemental instruction component of the apprenticeship training program. The sponsors work with employers to provide training and employment to move the apprentice forward by offering classroom instruction combined with on the job training. The approved apprentice training programs meet the requirements of the Division of Apprentice Standards (DAS). All apprentices must be registered through DAS to be adult education students. SJUSD adult education is the LEA for these programs.
