Attract, Train, and Retain Veteran Talent Webinar

The Department of Labor Veterans' Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS) is hosting a webinar in support of National Apprenticeship Week that will highlight three employers who are utilizing the Registered Apprenticeship model to attract, train, and retain veterans.


Learn how Adaptive Construction Solutions, McCarthy, and Amazon Web Services have structured their programs, how they are using federal and state funding to reduce costs, to include WIOA, DOL grants and the VA VET TEC program, and how they are engaging with the workforce system and other resources to diversify their employees.


VETS will highlight their Regional Veteran Employment Coordinators and how they assist employers who want to find and hire veterans, and the DOL Office of Apprenticeship will share the steps needed to register an apprenticeship program of your own.


We hope you will join us for this great opportunity to learn about best practices from employers who know how to successfully recruit and retain veterans, leverage partnerships, and utilize resources that provide positive outcomes for their companies.
