Our proximity to Joint Base Lewis McCord (JBLM) provides us with great opportunity for all of our soldiers who are being discharged to move into the work force. We also work closely with Helmets to Hardhats, a national, nonprofit program that connects National Guard, Reserve, retired and transitioning active-duty military service members with skilled training and quality career opportunities in the construction industry.
There are many excellent reasons to pursue a career in the constructions trades. Federal approved apprenticeship training programs come at no cost to the veteran and no prior experience is required. The five-year apprenticeship program will teach you everything you need to work in a specialized skilled craft. Because these are federally approved programs, you can use your Montgomery G.I. Bill benefits to supplement your income. Better yet, apprenticeship programs offer the opportunity to earn while you learn.
