NNS expands apprentice programs

Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS)’s Apprentice School was certified to provide academic degrees in 26 educational programs. Starting in 2023, the school will grant associate degrees of applied science in maritime technology to apprentices who complete the required coursework and skills training, including maintenance electrician, marine designer, nuclear test technician, welding, and modeling and simulation program analyst. “We’re proud to expand our competitive skills training and leadership program to offer academic degrees to apprentices,” said Latitia McCane, director of education at the school. “This historic achievement is a natural progression to the investment in workforce development we have made to recruit, train and develop the next generation of shipbuilders.”
