New Apprenticeship Opportunity

Apprenticeship bannerWhat Is The Catapult Apprenticeship?

The Catapult Apprenticeship Program will provide you with the training, skills, and security clearance needed to be successful working for AT&T. You will be paid while you train, and your curriculum will be paid for by AT&T.

As a part-time employee and apprentice with AT&T, you will:

  • Be paired with an AT&T technical mentor.
  • Earn 2,000 hours of on-the-job training (technical, soft skills, lab work, etc.).
  • Gain five industry certifications: A+, Network+, Security+, CCNA, and ITIL.

The Government will sponsor your security clearance while you are being trained. You will transition to a full-time AT&T employee when your security clearance is approved and be placed on a government contract.

The deadline to apply for the AT&T apprenticeship program is Thursday, September 23, 2021. The application is available in Career Connection. If you have any questions about the application or the program, please contact CatapultVA@att.com.
