The ABC Virginia Chapter has started implementing a competency-based component for their registered apprenticeship program. The chapter has already started to develop tasks for their electrical, HVAC and plumbing apprenticeship programs. The intent of the competency-based approach is to ensure apprentices receive experience in all facets of their craft, increase the speed of skill acquisition and enhance overall field performance. This innovative addition to ABC Virginia’s apprenticeship program is expected to be implemented in August 2020.
