VA benefits provide on-the-job training and apprenticeship support through programs that typically involve a training contract with an employer or union for a specific period of time. Use VA’s Comparison Tool to locate training or apprenticeships in your state.
When using this benefit, Veterans are employed and receive salary from the employer or union during training. As your skills increase, so may your salary. At the end of the VA-supported training period, Veterans receive a job certification or journeyman status.
