Finishing Trades Institute

At the Finishing Trades Institute of Ontario, our goal is to provide safe and educational training and certification to our members.

We train, upgrade and improve the vocational and safety skills of our members in response to industry needs in order to

  • enhance employability,
  • facilitate adjustments to technological change, and
  • most importantly keep our workers safe and aware.

 We are the designated Training Delivery Agent in Ontario for the in-school education of the Apprenticeship program for the trades of Architectural Glass and Metal Technician, Painter Decorator Branch 1, and Industrial Painter Branch 2. 

 We also offer a wide variety of health and safety training for members of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades and are always working on updating and expanding our training delivery, purchasing new equipment and growing our curriculum with the growing demand of the industry needs.
