Apprentice Program

Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard (PHNSY) along with an accredited educational institution provides opportunities for selected trainees to work alongside journeymen, receive trade theory training and work toward a degree in Applied Trades.

This highly competitive program, known as the "Apprentice Program", is a four-year work/study program which prepares students for careers in various industrial trades. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are normally offered permanent positions in the Shipyard. Program graduates may be noncompetitively promoted to the journeyman-level.

PHNSY is the Navy's Regional Center for the maintenance and repair of naval vessels in the Hawaii region and the largest repair facility between the West Coast and Far East. It employs nearly 5,000 civilian employees and military personnel, and is the largest industrial employer in the State of Hawaii.
