OJT and Apprenticeships

Apprenticeship and On-the-Job Training programs allow beneficiaries to learn a trade or skill through training on the job participation rather than attending the formal classroom instruction. The VA Education beneficiary usually enters into a training contract with an employer or union, and at the end of the training, the beneficiary gains job certification or journeyman status. The employer or union pays the beneficiary a salary. If the beneficiary is in an approved program they can use their VA Education benefit and receive a monthly tax-free stipend.

Industries and Jobs that may offer On-the-Job Training or Apprenticeship programs:
Correctional Facilities
Auto Repair

Benefits of having a program that is approved for VA Education Benefits:
Use the VA Education benefit as a recruiting tool by using wages + stipend to attract Veteran candidates.
