Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally-recognized credential.


Many employers are turning to the apprenticeship model to develop and grow their own workforce, invest in talent development, and attract and retain veteran talent. They have seen higher retention rates from veterans in their programs and report that their veteran employees demonstrate proven leadership, an ability to work well under pressure, and a strong work ethic. 

Registered Apprenticeship programs are high quality apprenticeship programs that have been approved and validated by the U.S. Department of Labor or a State Apprenticeship Agency. These programs enable employers to develop and train their future workforce while offering career seekers affordable paths to secure quality, high-paying jobs.  

And the statistics show that 90% of apprentices who complete a Registered Apprenticeship Program retain employment, with an average annual salary of $80,000. 

Why Hire a Veteran for Your Apprenticeship Program?


Apprenticeship programs enable veterans to get paid workplace experience while learning a new skill that is outside one’s military occupation, or further developing skills learned during military service, in pursuit of a civilian career. Registered apprentices earn a competitive wage from day one, can accumulate college credit and credentials, and can access their Post-9/11 Gi Bill benefits while accumulating no college dept!

Employers in industries such as construction, advanced manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, IT, cybersecurity, and many others, are using this model to attract, train and retain veterans.
