Apprenticeships are full-time, paid positions with UVA benefits. Apprentices learn their selected trade through a combination of on-the-job training, technical education and classroom instruction. This training is fully paid for by the University of Virginia.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or a General Education Development Certificate (GED) by August 2017. Applicants must be able to meet the physical requirements for their prospective trade.

The frequently asked questions and apprenticeship brochures may be of interest to prospective applicants who want to learn a trade while working as a full-time employee for UVA Facilities Management.
