|Action||Journeyman Examination Exemption for Completion of Approved Apprenticeship Program|
|Comment Period||Ends 12/21/2022|
There are many registered apprenticeships in the state of VA. Unfortunately, many just do the bare minimum to get their apprentices to pass the test. And there are others that truly train their apprentices into real trades workers. Those that do the bare minimum will do even less if they're apprentices are not required to pass a test to get a state certification. These workers would not be trades workers and certainly not be "journeypersons". Do not remove the examination in order to obtain a journeyman license issued by the Board.
