Detroit Training Center
Detroit, MI


The Detroit Training Center (DTC) specializes in customized, hands-on vocational programs of study, tailored to meet the construction and workforce needs of the city of Detroit. Established in 2012, DTC was founded on the principles of rebuilding and re-skilling Detroit residents with marketable licenses and certifications, allowing them to become valuable citizens. The goal is to decrease unemployment and retain residents in Detroit--enabling students to impact the future revitalization of the city socially and economically. As they begin to train as many Detroit residents in these fields as possible, DTC hopes to provide the workforce with long-term sustainability, in preparation for the demands of skilled labor that currently exists and for continued employment on projects that are on the horizon for the city.
