In partnership with the National Park Service Historic Preservation Training Center, Preservation Maryland’s newest effort, The Campaign for Historic Trades, is assisting with the recruitment of post-9/11 veterans to participate in a dynamic trades apprenticeship program.

The Traditional Trades Apprenticeship Program  (TTAP) provides an immersive, six-month experience for veterans to develop historic preservation trade skills as they maintain and care for monuments, memorials, and structures in our national parks.

Applicants must be 18-35 years of age, a United States citizen or legal resident, and be in possession of a certificate of release or discharge from active duty with a discharge status of honorable or general under honorable conditions. Program information, additional qualifications, and instructions on how to apply can be found on the TTAP website.
