We’re glad you asked ! Helmets to Hardhats is a great resource for many reasons. We help veterans pursue a career in a Union construction trade of their choice. You don’t need to have any experience in Construction. You will join an Apprenticeship Program which will provide you with all the training you need.
As an apprentice, you will be working full time on a construction site while getting trained. You get paid for every hour you work and the Apprenticeship training comes at no cost to the veteran through the local building trades. The length of apprenticeship varies from three to five years. Each union recruits and conducts training a bit differently – we will help you navigate that.
Because these apprenticeships are federally approved programs & include an educational component, you can use your G.I. Bill to supplement your income while you train – meaning you’re getting paid to work & get to keep your benefits.
