Traditional Trades Apprenticeship Program with NPS

  • 1.  Traditional Trades Apprenticeship Program with NPS

    The National Park Service and private industry need workers with specialized skills to preserve and maintain the buildings and structures in our national parks and historic communities. To help meet this need, the NPS Traditional Trades Apprenticeship Program (TTAP) was created.

    TTAP provides hands-on, historic preservation trade skills training during an intensive six-month learning-while-working experience. TTAP allows the important work of preserving the cultural resources and crucial infrastructure of national park sites to be passed onto the next generation in a time when many employment fields are becoming obsolete through mechanization. Traditional trades in their modern form require much of the same materials, tools, ingenuity, skills, and hard work that have been required for generations and can never be replaced.

    Positions at Fort Pulaski, (near Savannah, GA) and Chickamauga Chattanooga National Battlefield are currently open to applicants. Find out more information and links to position advertisements.  More positions in other parts of the country will be opened later this year.
