Transportation Distribution and Logistics: Apprenticeship Acceleration in West Tennessee


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Policies and Programs

~~“For veterans, benefits  of apprenticeship  programs  can include  a structured transition  process, ability to use GI Bill benefits in combination with apprenticeship incentives, and facilitation of skillset translation from a military to civilian environment. For women, apprenticeship programs can lead to economic self-sufficiency and access to high wage occupations they otherwise may not consider.    For persons  with  disabilities  who  may  not  perform  well  on  standardized  testing, apprenticeships can provide an alternative means of training that is better aligned to their strengths. However, the challenge may be in qualifying for apprenticeship programs as these individuals may not meet entrance criteria.”
