Veterans Wanting Apprenticeship
Helmets to Hardhats
Helmets to Hardhats is a national program that connects transitioning active-duty and reserve component member with training and employment opportunities with the construction industry. The statewide direct-entry level program provides a common agreement between Building and Construction Trades, Joint Apprenticeship Training Councils, locals (at their discretion) and Helmets to Hardhat leaders to support candidates in that state. The program allows candidates to start construction careers soon after they apply, and also gives them credit for military training and experience.
The intent of the program is to help those with military experience get hired in civilian construction trades that the program's organizers claim are facing a critical labor shortage.
