AT&T has partnered with Northern Virginia Community College and the Virginia Department of Labor to launch a new apprenticeship program that will provide on-the-job training with information technology in attempts to build a skilled talent pool that can fill the growing position gaps.

“How do students benefit from their participation in the new IT apprenticeship program at NOVA? As part-time AT&T employees, participating apprentices will train at NOVA's Reston complex while on-the-job training will combine in-person and virtual training at AT&T's Oakton facility. The training curriculum is designed to be completed in two years while student participants have their background clearances processed. The federal government will sponsor these security clearances while apprentices are being trained in the program.”

Participants who graduate the program with over 2,000 completed hours with on-the-job training will also be supported to complete industry certifications like Network+, Security+, and CCNA which all are coveted courses that can benefit workers immensely later in their careers. Apprentices who complete the training in its entirety will be approved for security clearance and report to AT&T as full-time employees.
