Will Montoya is the current Apprenticeship Program Manager for the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs and a strong advocate for apprenticeship and skilled trades throughout the State of Washington. Mr. Montoya hosts various outreach events to educate the military population on various apprenticeship opportunities to include a “Skilled Trades Rotation” which is a voluntary training event that allows Veterans, transitioning service members, and their families a unique opportunity to have a 2-4 hour hands on experience being a skilled tradesman. Thus far the Skilled Trades Rotation has been conducted in the following trades; cement mason, heat and frost insulation, ironworker, and advanced manufacturing, and sheet metal.  This unique program gives transitioning services members, veterans, military spouses, and even military high schoolers a rare glimpse into certain trades and occupations.
