Ref No.: 20-00016
Position Type:Internship
Start Date: 02/12/2020
Pay Rate : $ 15.00 /Hour
TTAP provides hands-on, historic preservation trade skills training during an intensive five-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.

Responsibilties may include, but are not limited to:
  • Conduct comprehensive and annual facility condition assessments of historic and non-historic resources
  • Inspect locations to develop a current hierarchy of critical and non-critical system assets complete with life-cycle data and replacement costs
  • Inspect assets and document deficiencies and work needed to maintain in good condition
  • Input deficiencies into Facility Management Software System
  • Create Work Orders
Locations: 
  • Christiansted National Historic Site (VI)
  • Martin Luther King National Historical Park (GA)
  • National Parks in NY Harbor (NY)
  • Voyageurs National Park (MN)
