VIHFA INTRODUCES A PRE-APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

The Authority is currently in the midst of developing a Pre-Apprenticeship program in conjunction with the Virgin Islands Department of Labor (VIDOL). This program will give unemployed individuals the opportunity to build their skills, experience and knowledge in the construction industry while gaining employment. 

The Pre-Apprenticeship Program will provide a blended delivery of career-tailored course instruction and on-the job training specific to the industry. Through various projects within VIHFA’s Affordable Housing and Community Development Program, participants will receive a quality education and expert advice from skilled tradesmen. This program is schedule to come on line mid 2013. Those who are interested in participating are encouraged to check this website or VIDOL for status updates.
