OJT and Apprenticeship Resources
The GI Bill® can be used in support of OJT (On the Job Training) and Apprenticeships, provided the training program is approved by the State Approving Agency. This is an industry-based training in which a Veteran or eligible beneficiary earns an entry-level wage while training for a designated skill or trade in a goal-oriented program. OJT’s and Apprenticeships offer a variety of training experiences and a majority of trades are approvable providing that the establishment can satisfy the approval criteria.
- An OJT program is acceptable in length when it is at least six months, but not more than two years of full-time training per 38 CFR 21.4262(c)(3).
- An APP is a program that ranges from 2,000 to 10,000 hours in length and requires related training from an institution.
