The one-year trainee program at SACC-DC consists of two parts: a 6 month full-time traineeship at the chamber followed by an additional 6 months divided part-time between the chamber and a member company. This solution has been made possible through the resources of The Lars Bjerde Memorial Fund that was established by SAAB North America, Inc. in memory of the years of dedication and effort that the late Lars Bjerde, a former VP of SAAB North America, Inc. provided to the Swedish-American Chambers of Commerce network.


At SACC-DC we strive to enrich your learning opportunity and to open new doors, in order to enhance your professional career. We are able to provide you with a valuable experience in a broad setting, offer insight into a non-profit organization as well as expose you to the Swedish-American business relations. Since we are strategically located in House of Sweden you will be given the opportunity to intern closely with the Embassy of Sweden as well as with other Swedish corporations and non-profit organizations.


We currently have two Swedish trainees at the office, one full-time and one part-time. Our current part-time trainee is with one of our private member companies three days/week.
