OJT and Apprenticeship Jobs for Veterans

The Department of Industrial Relations' Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) has programs that can help veterans look forward to a future of employment and possibilities.

The apprenticeship programs and the on-the-job-training (OJT) program allow veterans to learn skills for a lifelong career, while earning money and collecting Montgomery GI Bill benefits. There are a wide variety of career opportunities that include not only construction related trades but healthcare, manufacturing, firefighting, culinary and auto mechanics, among others.

Any occupation that requires at least one year of training and related and supplemental instruction classes can be made apprenticeable.

This enables you to receive pay as you learn and collect your GI Benefit. In the beginning when your apprenticeship paycheck is the smallest, you receive the largest GI benefit to which you are eligible. The payments decline as your apprenticeship salary increases.

Veterans can participate in existing apprenticeship programs, or seek a job that qualifies and ask the employer to contact DAS and set up an apprenticeship program.

On The Job programs are different from apprenticeships, if the program requires two years or less of training and does not require related and supplemental education. These jobs may qualify as an OJT program and qualify the veteran to receive GI Bill benefits. If you find a job that requires OJT but the employer does not have an official program set up, the employer can contact DAS for information on program benefits.
