If you need further information on the Apprenticeship Benefit in the Buyout Program you may contact Pat Bleecker at 615-253-1330.
Because an Apprenticeship Program is listed here does not mean that these programs are accepting new applications. Program Enrollments are different from one Program to another. VBP participants may request assistance to purchase test, tools and equipment.
