INTERN/APPRENTICE ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
Connecting Veterans, Transitioning Service Members, Guard and Reservists to careers in Alaska's construction workforce through apprenticeship – it’s not just hammers and nails. The goal of Alaska's Helmets to Hardhats is to ensure service members are aware of these opportunities, and have priority over others with the construction trade apprenticeships and employers, to provide guidance toward careers that pay, keeping these skilled men and women in our state, building our communities and raising their families. Most importantly, guiding them towards success and doing our best to make their transition into the civilian world easier. Partnered with the Alaska Construction Academy we provide free trainings in Electrical, Welding, Plumbing, Carpentry, Weatherization; as well as health and safety classes (OSHA 10, First Aid CPR, Scaffolding, etc.). These short courses and pre-apprenticeship trainings help get civilian certificates on resumes. All of our trainings are free, and range from one week to three weeks. There are evening, weekend, and daytime classes for people who are unemployed or in transition. Many H2H clients get permission to be off post to take our trainings when they are in the transition phase without taking leave. ACAP / TAP add trainings to the allowable class list.
