Pre-Apprenticeship Programs

The MACTC partners with community organizations to offer pre-apprenticeship workforce development programs and high school technical career and technical education.  The focus of these programs is to provide fundamental carpentry skills training to individuals who will soon be entering the workforce.  Our Pre-Apprenticeship Programs are customized to meet the specific needs of our partner organizations.  Most often, the training includes topics such as:

  • Measuring and related mathematics
  • Shop safety
  • Hand tools
  • Power tools
  • Materials and fasteners
  • Layout and construction techniques
  • Green construction concepts and techniques

Some of our partner organizations are local high schools who seek to supplement their career and technical education with intensive carpentry instruction at MACTC.  In these cases, high school students will come to MACTC for several weeks during the school year to receive carpentry instruction.  Many partner organizations ask us to design programs to train and prepare their participants for entry into the MACTC Apprenticeship Program.  A partial list of our partners include:

  • Sisters-In-The-Brotherhood
  • Prince Georges Community College
  • District of Columbia Department of Employment Services
  • District of Columbia Public Schools
  • The Alexandria Seaport Foundation
  • Community College of the District of Columbia
  • College of Southern Maryland
  • C.H.O.I.C.E. of Washington Dc
  • C.H.O.I.C.E. of Baltimore
