Helmets to Hardhats
The Helmets to Hardhats program is designed to help active duty military personnel transition into a new career in the construction trades. It is available to any service man or woman leaving the U.S. Armed Forces, National Guard or Reserves.
Helmets to Hardhats provides direct entry into Regional Council apprenticeship training. Veterans can begin their training without obtaining a sponsoring contractor; they become immediately eligible for placement on Regional Council work lists. Any relevant training that veterans receive in the military counts toward their apprenticeship credits.
