Finishing Trades Institute

I had the pleasure of visiting the Finishing Trades Institute of Mid Atlantic Region, right here in the district. They are committed to setting students up for successful and valuable careers in trade. Students can enroll in the Institute for fifteen-week periods during the fall and spring semesters, leaving with skills in CPR, first aid, scaffold development, and OSHA safety courses. All students are granted the MC3 certificate at the end of the course, making them eligible and well-prepared to start a career in the trade of their choice.

I toured the facilities and saw firsthand the incredible work they’re doing. They hire apprentices based on contractor needs, ensuring that every apprentice has work opportunities waiting for them upon graduation. I am so fortunate to represent labor unions and the Finishing Trades right here in Northeast Philly. We have the best labor force in the country because of programs like this!

It was a privilege to see the work the Finishing Trade Institute is doing to set future employees up for success. #Unionstrong #JourneywithJimmy
