Your Military Experience Is Your Career Foundation
Veterans are hard-wired to succeed in transportation because they are already a part of the largest and most complex supply chains in the world—the U.S. military. An apprenticeship allows you to translate that incredible foundation into a civilian career by taking advantage of on-the-job paid training with industry leaders.
GIs in Apprenticeships
If you are eligible for GI Bill benefits, you may use those benefits while you are training in an apprenticeship program. Eligible Veterans pursuing training under an apprenticeship program will receive a monthly housing allowance (MHA) in addition to their apprenticeship wages. Remember that all Registered Apprenticeships are paid jobs. As your skills increase, so will your salary. That increasing salary in combination with your GI Bill payments give you a great foundation to use this training time to become a true expert in your chosen profession.
