For National Apprenticeship Week, GBCA is spotlighting some of the trades with which we closely work. Today, we look at the Finishing Trades.

The mission of the Finishing Trades Institute of the Mid-Atlantic Region (FTI) is to supply area contractors with the most highly skilled craftspeople in the construction industry. In particular, the six industries for which they have apprenticeship standards registered; Architectural Glass & Metal Installers (Glaziers), Coatings Applicator Specialist (Industrial Painters), Commercial Paint & Wall Covering, Drywall Finishing, Glassworkers, and Multi-Craft Decorators. The FTI designs programs that produce some of the best journeypersons, supervisors, and project managers in North America. The FTI provides a unique learning environment with state-of-the-art classroom and lab spaces.
