Apprenticeship Program

Earn while you learn! Start a carpentry career while training in our Apprenticeship program.

Journeyman Program

Member carpenters can choose from a variety of carpentry classes for continuous skill improvement.


If you’re not ready or don’t qualify for an Apprenticeship or Journeyman Program, you still have options.




The Mid-Atlantic Carpenters’ Training Centers (MACTC) has conducted carpentry training programs for Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia since 1951. Students in this program are on a career path that promises good union jobs with superior health benefits and retirement pension plans.

The MACTC apprenticeship is a four-year program consisting of on-the-job training and related school-based instruction. Our carpentry students are employed by union construction companies and earn some of the best wages in the industry. MACTC Apprentices earn while they learn.

Journeyman carpenters also attend the MACTC to broaden and enhance their trade craft. The MACTC offers more than 25 Extended Learning classes that allow Journeyman to continually develop their carpentry skills and ensure they are the region’s best craftsmen.

The MACTC also partners with community organizations to offer pre-apprenticeship workforce development programs. Through these partnerships with civic agencies and local high schools, the MACTC is a partner to the Community in training the future workforce.
