In Minnesota, apprentices who graduate to journey-level status will receive 47 credits for the instruction they receive during their Regional Council apprenticeship. They will need 19 more credits to complete an Associate in Applied Science degree in Apprenticeship Technology. Thirteen of the credits come from four General Education required classes; the remaining six credits are General Education electives. (Some of the required classes have prerequisites.)
