The University of Virginia is accepting applications for the Apprenticeship Program
Apprentices learn trades while working full time and receiving training, becoming skilled in carpentry, masonry, plastering, or licensed in electrical, plumbing, or HVAC. Apprentices gain knowledge through on-the-job training and classroom instruction. UVa covers tools, personal protective equipment (PPE), uniforms, and training costs. Apprentices attend classes, meetings, maintain minimum B average in instruction, and demonstrate effective job performance.

At the culmination of the contract, a determination is made which trade best fits the employee. There is no guarantee of employment after restricted employment.
