Apprentices can also pursue an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) or Transfer Degree (AAS-T) which offer two pathways to college degrees. The AAS is a degree in Multi-Occupational Trades and, at certain colleges, the AAS-T will transfer into baccalaureate degree programs. With the completion of only a few classes outside of their apprenticeship trainings, apprentices will receive an AAS or AAS-T degree. The AAS-T degree allows students to transfer to any Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Degree at the Seattle Colleges, or any of the many colleges that have articulation agreements with South Seattle College.

The Washington State Labor Education and Research Center (LERC) works with unions, community-based organizations and within colleges throughout Washington State to provide training and classes for and about working people. Our mission is to help working women and men develop the skills, confidence, and knowledge to be leaders at work and in their communities.  Our goal is to equip all types of workers with the skills to run effective organizations and build a 21st century labor movement.

The Labor Center houses the Will Parry library with hundreds of books about labor. We also have movies that can be checked out and other resources available for public use.
