Twenty of the students who signed on will begin full-time positions within the shipyard and the other 12 will attend The Newport News Shipbuilding Apprentice School, which will prepare them for a career in shipbuilding. The Apprentice School is funded by HII to train and develop the next generation of shipbuilders. It offers four- to eight-year tuition-free apprenticeships in 19 trades and eight options advanced programs, including accredited undergraduate degrees in engineering.
