Detroit Training Center strives to teach and provide our students with the knowledge, skills, and tools to empower themselves and their community. You’ll receive the materials, facilities, and environment necessary to accomplish your goals.

the workshops | COMING SPRING 2019

DTC's Home Improvement Workshops (also called our "Saturday Homeowner Workshops") are two-hour hands-on home improvement courses we offer every weekend. The topics of each course rotate throughout the year and are geared to provide basic fundamental knowledge for those looking to learn do-it-yourself home repair or renovation. The workshops do not result in a certificate or license of any kind--they are designed to establish a foundation for basic home renovation projects (kids are welcome, too!). Our Residential Builder's License Program and Tiny House Construction Program include the workshops that occur during the time of their prospective program. Some of our workshops are catered specifically to special interests, like tiny houses or off-grid power.
