Would you like to land a prestigious, four-year paid apprenticeship, build your career, and make a difference in the world while pursuing your associate degree at New England Tech? If you plan to pursue a degree in one of NEIT’s building trades associate degree programs, you are eligible to apply for a paid apprenticeship through the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) apprenticeship program at the Navy bases in either Newport, RI or Groton, CT.
Join us on either Tuesday, December 13 or Wednesday, December 14 anytime between 4:30 – 6:00 pm, on our main campus, One New England Tech Boulevard, East Greenwich RI, 02818. You’ll get to meet with a senior representative from NAVFAC who will discuss the apprenticeship program in greater detail and answer any questions you might have.
If you qualify and are accepted into the program, you’ll work alongside NAVFAC personnel mentors who are the Navy’s installation facility experts.
Through this experience, you’ll build your résumé while providing tangible value to our nation’s defense and our citizens.
You’ll be eligible to apply for an apprenticeship if you enroll in any of NEIT’s associate degree programs in electrical technology, or heating, plumbing, or refrigeration technology.
Just announced – NAVFAC presently has vacancies and will consider candidates from NEIT’s automotive technology program to fulfill apprenticeship duties as a heavy mobile equipment mechanic.
Military veterans are especially encouraged to apply. The Federal Government has a long and outstanding record of employing veterans. Veterans have technical skills in areas of critical importance, and many already have security clearances required for some Federal positions. Federal service provides a means for veterans to continue their noble service to this country while pursuing their advanced degree.
