Registered Apprenticeship Programs offers employers in every industry the tools to develop a highly skilled workforce which will help grow their business. For businesses, Registered Apprenticeship has gained traction as a vehicle for quickly and affordably building a quality work force. Read more about the advantages from an Aspen Institute Study. For veterans, the Registered Apprenticeship Program offers opportunities to earn a salary while learning the skills necessary to succeed in high-demand careers. Consider the information below;
- Securing employment as a registered apprentice gives you the ability to earn full-time wages and collect a monthly GI Bill check for the duration of your apprentice training period.
- GI Bill payments start out higher at the beginning and decrease over time as apprentice wages increase.
- The sponsoring employer certifies the veteran’s work hours monthly, which triggers the GI Bill payment.
