DC 06/FTI OR Receives COE accreditation

Congratulations to District Council 6/FTI Ohio Region on receiving COE accreditation in June 2022! DC6 becomes the sixth iFTI District Council (and the 20th building trades registered apprenticeship) to become accredited by the Council on Occupational Accreditation. DOT George Boots led FTIOR staff through a process of learning and analysis of each of its four crafts that were candidates for accreditation: Painter, Drywall Finisher, Glazier and Industrial Painter.  “There was no template or boiler-plate we could use,” Boots said in an interview with Matt Jaworski, Labor Citizen Writer. “We all had to think. It led to everyone having a better understanding of what we needed to achieve.”
