A V.F.D. Apprentice is a V.F.D. student who has graduated from V.F.D. basic training. A graduate is sent to begin an apprenticeship with a V.F.D. Chaperone who guides the apprentice through various V.F.D. duties. The apprentice selects a chaperone from a list of around fifty V.F.D. members. Factors that an apprentice may consider while selecting a chaperone include the chaperone's ranking and location of work.
Apprenticeships may take place in many locations, due to personal preference of the chaperone, work available, and/or the educational needs of the apprentice.
