Interview with ABC CraftMasters
Please call 301-853-4668 to schedule your appointment.

During your orientation with us, we will discuss employer and sponsor obligations, as well as what you can expect from our program. We will also conduct a careful review of all application documents.
Approval Process
From DC Apprenticeship Council (if applying in the District):
after the submission of your application documents, they will be processed and sent to DOES for approval. Providing all documents are received in their office before the deadline, your company will be on the agenda for the next upcoming council meeting. Additionally, a representative from DOES will call to schedule a consultation meeting to prepare for the meeting.

From Maryland:
Approval from Maryland does not require an employer to sit before the council. Paperwork is processed, stamped for approval and returned to the participating sponsor within a few weeks.
