Finishing Trades Institute (FTI)


Even in today’s uncertain economy, highly trained workers are always in demand. Highly skilled workers command higher pay and better benefits than unskilled workers. Highly skilled workers are safer on the job and have fewer job-related accidents than do unskilled workers. Trained workers also benefit employers, who can finish projects faster, better, and more safely with skilled workers.

Our union is committed to meeting the demands of employers for a productive, skilled workforce by providing unsurpassed training and education opportunities for all IUPAT members. IUPAT district councils and local unions offer education and training programs that make our members the most knowledgeable and accomplished craft workers in North America.

The Finishing Trades Institute, IUPAT's innovative and exciting job training program, is governed by a board of trustees consisting of members of the IUPAT and the union's signatory employers. Learn more about the FTI's staff and its trustees by visiting the links above.

The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades provides a multitude of opportunities to build a secure future for you and your family. Take advantage of these opportunities by becoming an IUPAT member or by organizing workers in your community!
