VETS Apprenticeship Pilot Opportunity

Apprenticeship can be part of your HIRE Vets Medallion Award Program

The U.S. Department of Labor’s groundbreaking Apprenticeship Pilot for transitioning service members can help employers meet the HIRE Vets Medallion Award criteria through the use of apprenticeship programs. Employers can take advantage of this pilot to start an apprenticeship program or connect their existing apprenticeship program with transitioning service members.


For this pilot, the Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) has embedded 16 Apprenticeship Placement Counselors at eight military installations across the United States to work with transitioning service members and their spouses interested in exploring apprenticeship as a post-separation career pathway. During the pilot, apprenticeship counselors are assisting transitioning service members as they select, locate, and apply for apprenticeships that are located across the nation.


If you have an apprenticeship program and would like to connect your program with this pilot, or if you would like to learn how you can develop an apprenticeship program that can attract, train, and retain veterans, please email
