  • Who are we?

    Laborers Joint Training and Apprenticeship fund of Washington DC is a nonprofit training fund jointly administered by management and union labor.

  • Where are we?

    We have a state of the art training center located in Lanham, MD.

  • What do we do?

    Provide Construction Craft Laborers’ training to gain new skills or upgrade their current skills. Laborers new to the trade can acquire the necessary skills to enter the construction industry with confidence.

  • What does it cost?

    Training to union construction craft laborers is free of charge. For most classes the training fund will provide lunch and/or a stipend to union members participating in the training.

  • Our Goal

    Is to make sure every union laborer has the skills needed to maintain: sound employment, work safe (make it home every day), and to give our employers a competitive edge over nonunion employers.
