What's Apprenticeship?

How Can I Become An Apprentice?

Each of the types of machining jobs shares common skills and knowledge. Each also has other skills and knowledge which are specific to that particular work area. Because of the differences, each job is associated with a different apprenticeship program. Our Public Safety program will provide participants with training to meet the basic requirements for becoming an apprentice in any of these and other areas in the safety industry. However, the following requirements are customary for individuals applying to be accepted into our training program and to be accepted into an apprenticeship program certified by the U.S. Department of Labor:

  • Minimum age 17to participate, must be 18 prior to being indentured*
  • Valid state/federal issued ID
  • Drug-free
  • High School diploma, GED, or equivalent

*VBA’s minimum age to participate in training is 16 years. Participants must be 18 to be accepted into DOL certified apprenticeship programs.
