Apprentices receive on-the-job training combined with classroom-related instruction to ensure that the apprentice is fully trained in all areas of their chosen occupation. Students may work part-time or full-time as registered apprentices. They must be actively pursuing career preparation courses or a diploma, certificate or degree program related to their occupation, include apprenticeship related instruction as part of coursework, and enter into a written training agreement that represents a partnership between the employer, the Virginia Apprenticeship Council, and the student. Apprentices are awarded a journeyman certificate from the Commonwealth of Virginia after successful completion of the on-the-job training and related instruction.
