Apprenticeship training is available for Veterans through programs sponsored by the Department of Labor and the VA. For Veterans with technical skills, or those who don't wish to pursue a traditional education apprenticeship may be the perfect fit. Benefits of enrolling in an apprenticeship program include:
- A paycheck from day one, guaranteed to increase over time as you learn new skills.
- Hands-on career training in a wide selection of programs, such as health care, construction, information technology and geospatial careers.
- An education and the potential to earn college credit, even an associate or bachelor's degree, in many cases paid for by your employer.
- Ability to use your GI Bill benefits to supplement your apprentice income.
