Registered Apprenticeship Program

Overview: Virginia Youth Registered Apprenticeship (YRA) Program

The Richmond Technical Center is one of five schools selected by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry to participate in a pilot program for workforce development.  Youth, ages 16 to 18 years old, are eligible to apply.  Through a combination of on-the-job training and custom-designed instruction, participants in the Virginia Registered Apprenticeship Program will be trained to help employers meet their growing need for a highly-skilled workforce.  The program is a "win-win" approach for both apprentices and employers.  Apprentices earn as they learn and acquire valuable job skills, and employers develop their own skilled labor force, which will help them compete in today's global economy.
