The Finishing Trades Institute of the Mid-Atlantic Region (FTI) registered its first set of apprenticeship standards with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) in 1945; and has operated in good standing since that time. In 2009 the FTI became the first stand-alone building trade’s apprenticeship program to receive full accreditation from the U.S. Department of Education. The FTI is a leader and innovator in the apprenticeship world and continues to change the model with their outside the box approaches to things like; training, diversity, outreach and professional development of staff. In 2011 the FTI won the Department of Labors “Innovator and Trailblazer Award” and in 2012 the Construction Users Round Table (CURT) named the Finishing Trades Institute their “Workforce Development Award” winner.
National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is a National Celebration that offers leaders in business, labor, education, and other critical partners a chance to express their support for Apprenticeship. NAW also gives apprenticeship sponsors the opportunity to showcase their programs, facilities and apprentices in their community. The weekly events highlight the benefits of Apprenticeship in preparing a highly-skilled workforce to meet the talent needs of employers across diverse industries.
Mark your calendars for November 13 - 19, 2017 as we will celebrate the third annual National Apprenticeship Week across the Country and we want this year's celebration to be bigger than ever. Please join the movement and help us reach our goal of over 1,000 events across the Country by hosting and/or participating in an event.
