Norfolk Naval Shipyard Apprentice Program

Earn while you learn an in-demand maritime trade

Norfolk Naval Shipyard's (NNSY) Apprentice Program, in partnership with TCC, is designed to attract talented individuals who want a rewarding career with the federal government. The next Apprenticeship Announcement Period is open from July 5, 2018 to August 5, 2018.

Students participate in a rigorous training program, which combines TCC's academic classes with NNSY’s trade theory training and on-the-job learning experience.

All academics will be given during working hours within the first year of the program. Participants will take courses taught by TCC faculty members, normally at the Portsmouth Campus.

Compressed sessions will consist of 2 nine-week sessions, leading to a Certificate of Completion.
