Do you enjoy hands-on projects and looking for a new career? If so, the Maintenance Apprenticeship Program may be for you! With 30,000 apartments currently under construction in the greater Denver-metro area, it is estimated that a minimum of 1,500 new jobs will be created over the next three years and there is a high need for skilled maintenance professionals.

What is MAP?

The Maintenence Apprenticeship Program (MAP) is a six-week program that is designed to train future maintenance professionals (with little or no experience) with the skills needed for a career in the apartment industry. This program consists of two parts: in-class and paid on-site training (apprenticeship). Both parts work simultaneously over a six-week period to prepare the student for a career in maintenance.

The goal of this program is to provide individuals with a job opportunity at the completion of the program. Students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program. In addition, by completing this program, students will have completed the classroom requirements for the nationally accredited Certificate for Apartment Maintenance Technician (CAMT).
