The full sentence is

見学を希望する場合は、一週間前までに担当者を通じて申し込んでください。

I want to know this 一週間前までに meaning. I tried thinking and came up with "within one week before (the deadline which is not mentioned)" but I'm not sure if it's correct.

Let's look at the different parts:

  • までに usually refers to a hard deadline (e.g. "until ... at the latest")
  • 見学 means (learning/training by) watching, for example watching a training session
  • 一週間前 is to be understood as one week before the intended date of 見学 (e.g. watching the training session).

Putting it all together:

見学を希望する場合は、一週間前までに担当者を通じて申し込んでください。
For those wishing to watch [a training session / a lesson], please get in touch with the contact person at least a week in advance.

(You will have to adapt the translation of 見学 depending on the context.)
