Welcome to the DCRA Pre-Apprenticeship Program
DCRA is excited to announce the launch of the second annual Pre-Apprenticeship Program. The purpose of the Pre-Apprenticeship Program is to provide specific building code compliance training instruction to junior and senior high school students in basic code fundamentals of the International Code Council (ICC) Certificate. DCRA’s goal is to allow District junior and senior high students to become exposed to the existing trade and engineering curricula through classroom instruction, field shadowing, and professional development where the theoretical code fundamentals will be demonstrated through real-life application.
This program is an excellent opportunity to begin a rewarding career that is a Pathway to the Middle Class. Students can earn a vocational certificate along with earning a high school diploma and work towards the International Residential Code (IRC) Certificate.
