Non-Registered Apprenticeship Program

Eligible veterans have the choice to sign up for our Non-Registered Apprenticeship Program.

This program will be offered for all entry positions focused on either our Import or Export Departments.

This is just another way that we can provide additional benefits for our Veterans in the community. Below is a breakdown of not only how the benefits are structured, but also who would qualify as an eligible participant.

    • 60 percent of your applicable MHA during the third six months of training

    • 40 percent of your applicable MHA during the fourth six months of training
