ACS can place you into a job that leads to a career

Have you found that "great" job?

Veterans and transitioning service members possess valuable soft skills but often find it challenging to land a great job. Many are told they need industry specific experience and or credentials before they would be considered for a position.

Can you afford to learn before you earn?

For multiple reasons college is not a realistic option for many veterans. As a service member transitions from the Armed Forces they want to get to work or can’t afford to support a family while attending college.

Did you know you can earn while you learn?

With a Registered Apprenticeship as a training model, veterans are first placed in a job and earn competitive wages while learning on the job. Additionally veterans are eligible to receive a monthly housing allowance from their GI Bill benefits. The combination of apprentice wages and this allowance provides veterans journey level compensation.

What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship is a flexible employer-driven training model that combines on-the-job training, with job-related instruction. As apprentices progress through the program, they earn incremental wage increases and nationally recognized credentials. Apprentices can be new hires, or businesses can select current employees who need skill upgrades. The apprenticeship model is leading the way in preparing American workers to compete in today’s economy.

Reasons to Join an Apprenticeship

1. Earn while you learn
2. Accumulate no education debt
3. Gain experience and education
4. Learn from the best
5. Receive mentorship from professionals
6. Become a valued member of a team
7. Earn incremental pay increases
8. Attain nationally recognized credentials
9. Achieve career growth
10. Find enjoyment in a job

Veterans in Training

Veterans in Apprenticeship

Veterans eligible for GI Bill benefits may use their benefits while participating in an approved apprenticeship program. Veterans who utilize the GI Bill will receive a monthly housing allowance (MHA) in addition to their apprenticeship wages. The combination of apprentice wages and MHA is similar to journey level compensation.
