I. The first order of business was the approval of the minutes of the and the September 18, 2018 Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Council meetings. The minutes of the July 10, 2018 and the September 18, 2018 Council meetings were approved as submitted.

II. DIRECTOR’S REPORT:

A. Mr. MacLarion wished a happy Veterans Day to those on the Council and to those in the audience who were veterans or had family members who had served.

B. Mr. MacLarion acknowledged to Council members that the agenda for the Council meeting had gone out late in the day on the Friday prior to the meeting which was later that what would have been liked to have been done. He stated that the Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Program office would work towards getting the agendas out a minimum of five days prior to meetings with a goal of getting them out seven days prior to meetings to give Council members more time to review the items on the agenda.

C. Council members were informed that there were 18 events on the official agenda for National Apprenticeship Week. Copies of the schedule of events were distributed to Council members and Mr. MacLarion added that the schedule could also be found the website www.mdapprenticeship.com where there was link to a schedule of National Apprenticeship Week events.

D. Mr. MacLarion stated that the U.S. Department of Labor had completed their monitoring of the Apprenticeship USA Grant for Maryland and that there were no project related findings or concerns. One issue for Maryland to fix was to notify all sub- grantees of the full terms and conditions for any grant awards.

E. Council members were provided with an update on the status of the Apprenticeship Training Fund. Mr. MacLarion stated that the balance in the fund as of November 30, 2018 after all obligations was $675,523.46. Contributions coming into the fund were $25,878.36 for the month of September 2018 and $56,689.72 for October 2018.

F. Mr. MacLarion reported that the were now 55 registered apprenticeship program sponsors on the Eligible Training Provider List which was an increase of 2 sponsors since the previous Council meeting. He encouraged the new sponsors coming onboard to talk to their Apprenticeship Navigator to get their apprenticeship programs ready to go on the Eligible Training Provider list and to hopefully receive the benefits that the workforce development system has available to them.

G. New sponsors and current sponsors attending the Council meeting were reminded of the $1,000 tax credit for registered apprentices. Mr. MacLarion provided an explanation of how the tax credit worked and where to go on the DLLR website to find information about the tax credit and application forms.

H. Council members were provided with an update on the expansion of Apprenticeship Maryland (Youth). Mr. MacLarion noted that Dorchester County had joined Frederick and Washington Counties in participating in Apprenticeship Maryland (Youth). Howard County had submitted its application to the Maryland State Department of Education to participate and meetings were scheduled with school systems in Baltimore, Anne Arundel and Queen Anne’s Counties in November.

III. OLD BUSINESS:

A. PROGRAM REVIEWS:

1. Ralph G. Degli Obizzi & Sons, Inc. (John F. Vontran).

This item was tabled at the September 18, 2018 Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Council meeting in order for staff to provide Council members with further information regarding apprentice completions.

Mr. Vontran reported to Council members that the information provided in the review that the sponsor had not completed any apprentices was correct. He added that subsequent to the Council meeting he had contacted the sponsor and learned that they were in the process of submitting completions for about ten (10) of their apprentices. He added that these were apprentices who had been registered in the last five or so years.

Mr. Shmelzer inquired about other apprentices who had been registered since the apprenticeship program was registered in 2008. Mr. Vontran responded that when he performed the review it was found that the sponsor had apprentices that were still registered beyond their projected completion dates and that he had worked with the sponsor in getting them either cancelled or extended. Mr. MacLarion explained that in the past, there were not adequate resources to conduct reviews as frequently as they should have been done and that contact had not been maintained with some sponsors. He updated Council members on what was being done now to reestablish contact with those sponsors and to assure that reviews would be completed on a regular schedule.

A motion to accept this review, with staff findings and recommendations, was made by Mr. Shmelzer, seconded by Mr. Poling and unanimously approved.

Mr. Shmelzer made the point that for the portion of the related instruction that would be provided by a community college, the community college needed to provide the sponsor with records of both grades and attendance for the sponsor’s apprentices.

Mr. Klusmann inquired about who would pay for the related instruction courses that would be taken through a community college. Mr. Ward responded that individuals who needed to take the courses required to obtain their CDL License would pay for the courses up front and then would be reimbursed by the company upon completion of the courses and becoming hired by the company.

Students would be registered as apprentices in their junior year and complete the Core and Level 1 of the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum during that year and complete Level 2 of the NCCER curriculum during their senior year. Ms. Butt commented that with the schools that they work with for their school-to- apprenticeship component, apprentices only complete Level 1 of the NCCER curriculum while still in high school which is the Maryland State Department of Education’s requirement. Mr. Wallace concurred with that statement. Ms. Durant stated that their CTE students were already doing the Core, Level 1 and Level 2 of the NCCER curriculum while in school.

There was considerable discussion of how long it would take for apprentices to complete their apprenticeships and whether it was a four year or a five year program. Council members also raised concerns about the timing of when the apprentices would be advanced to the next step of the apprentice wage progression schedule.

A motion to approve this request for registration of Standards of Apprenticeship pending the receipt of signature pages and modification to the apprentice wage progression schedules was made by Mr. Klusmann, seconded by Mr. Bromley and approved with ten (10) Council members in favor of the motion and one Council member not voting.
