National Apprenticeship Week was created by President Barack Obama in 2016 to “support and encourage apprenticeship programs that will help rebuild our middle class” and “rededicate ourselves to educating more of our people, retraining our workforce, and renewing our nation’s promise to put the American dream within the reach of the determined.” The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 6 (IUPAT DC6), in partnership with the Finishing Trades Institute of the Ohio Region (FTIOR), invites members of the community to attend a special Apprenticeship Open House on Tuesday, November 13th from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM at Painters District Council 6 Office/FTIOR Training Center at 8257 Dow Circle W, Strongsville, Ohio 44136. The Open House provided an opportunity to explore career opportunities while learning about the positive impact Apprenticeships have throughout the nation. There is no cost to attend, and pre-registration is not required.
