The DC Apprenticeship Academy confers credentials
on apprentices who complete all levels, up to four years, of related
instruction to become eligible for journey level salary or licensing.
In 2016, apprentices in carpentry, roofing, and electrical specialties
achieved this career milestone at the 7th Annual DC Apprenticeship
Academy Graduation Ceremony.
The DC Apprenticeship Academy offers apprenticeship
training, or related instruction, for registered apprentices working
in the construction trades. The training program is operated by
the DC Students Construction Trades Foundation and is fully accredited
by NCCER and the District of Columbia Apprenticeship Council.
DC Apprenticeship Academy classes meet in the
technology-based training facility at IDEA Public Charter School,
located at 1027 45th Street NE, Washington, DC, with ample available
parking and nearby Metro stations.
