The National Park Service and Historic Preservation Training Center (HPTC), along with the Stewards Individual Placement Program, are seeking individuals to participate in the Traditional Trades Apprenticeship Program. This program provides post-9/11 military service veterans hands-on skills training from NPS professionals, focusing on the maintenance and care of monuments, memorials, and structures in the National Park Service system. Apprentices will receive introductory training in a variety of traditional trades and will develop an understanding of historic resource stewardship while helping to preserve our nations historic resources. This program provides apprentices with marketable skills and excellent exposure to the historic preservation career field within the NPS as well as the private sector.

There are two components to the Traditional Trades Apprenticeship Program: an initial training period and an extended project period. For the first two to three weeks, NPS professionals teach apprentices safety techniques, preservation philosophy, and technical trades skills. During this training, apprentices complete core curriculum through the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), an industry leading certification program for maintenance and craft professionals. This training will be based at the Historic Preservation Training Center in Frederick, MD. Apprentices living outside commuting distance will have housing, travel, and per diem expenses covered throughout the two to three week training period.

For the remainder of the program, apprentices hone their skills alongside NPS craftspeople at Historic Preservation Training Center.

At Historic Preservation Training Center, apprentices will be assigned to ongoing masonry projects with the HPTC preservation work crews. Apprentices will be encouraged and required to be a participating member of the working team. Work tasks will be determined on a project by project basis and assigned by the project leader. Assignments will be determined and assigned respective of the skill level and ability of each individual steward.
