Apprenticeship and Skills Training 


ABC of Metro Washington founded ABC CraftMasters Training Trust (CTT), a separate 501(c)(3) organization, to help its members and the merit shop construction community create a qualified workforce now and into the future. CTT offers apprenticeship and construction craft training in up to 21 separate trades.

Our Mission is to develop construction trade professionals through innovative educational programming that provides the metro Washington region with the most highly-skilled workforce. If you are a student considering your initial career path, a seasoned veteran of the construction or any other industry, or an employer looking for ways to improve your employees’ skill set, our programs are a viable option for you. Our programs are fully approved and accredited by the:

•National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER)
•U.S. Department of Labor (DOL)
•Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Council (MATC)
•DC Apprenticeship and Training Council (DCATC)
•Veterans Administration (VA)
Our program is periodically reviewed by NCCER and consistently receives “outstanding” ratings.



For current students: We are currently helping students/graduates on the completion of last year’s classes and also working on the schedule for upcoming classes. We appreciate your patience and will update you as soon as the new schedule is complete.
For general Trades Education program information: Once we are more back in the office we anticipate having apprenticeship informational sessions.
