The DC Apprenticeship Academy provides formal apprenticeship training programs that are approved by the DC Apprenticeship Council and registered with the United States Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship. Our related instruction training programs meet all federal and state requirements for formal apprenticeship. Upon successful completion, craft workers are recognized at the journey level in their trade and are awarded their apprenticeship certificate and industry-recognized credentials.

DCAA offers:

  • Instructor-led classes in Electrical, Carpentry, and other trades by request, providing a combination of classroom and lab instruction to meet the training and compliance needs of businesses of all sizes.
  • Classes meet in the evening from September through June in our skilled trades training facility at IDEA Public Charter School, located at 1027 45th Street NE, Washington, DC, with ample available parking and nearby Metro stations.
  • Customized training programs you can teach at your location, saving you and your apprentices time and money.
