Each year, the IUPAT Directors of Training from across North America meet with the International Finishing Trades Institute staff and director to discuss curriculum, best practices and how we can continue to build upon one of the best training programs in the United States and Canada.
Typically, everyone meets personally. However, the Covid-19 crisis has stopped travel. Instead of postponing this years meeting, the iFTI created a webinar to cover material and developments, and generate discussion among the directors and iFTI as scheduled.
This week, over 50 directors of training and iFTI representatives are meeting online to discuss the needed training to protect workers on the job during and after the Covid-19 crisis, the implementation of the IUPAT Helping Hand curriculum and resources in district councils, and Recruitment and Retention/Mentoring program developments, among other subjects.
The iFTI is also teaching and training various courses online as well. Check the Training Calendar for an update on what is being made available to our trainers HERE.
