I found two items that may interest you. First is the article Getting the Most out of Training: For Employers Working with Apprentices and Trainees. ERIC is not allowing people to read attached documents, so I haven't actually read this, but the abstract was interesting.  It is possible to request a copy from ERIC if you like it.

Second is from the U.S. Dept. of Labor.  It is a titled New Apprenticeable Occupation =96 Chemistry Quality Control Technician (2009-01).  While this is a standard for a different job, you could probably modify it to fit your purposes.  I couldn't find one specifically for an undergraduate lab technician.

I hope it helps. Please let me know.

I wonder if anyone on DCHAS-L has examples that might apply to this request?

Thanks for any help with this.
