NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP WEEK – November 11-17
District Council 53 invited our partners to a Contractors’ Appreciation Open House at the FTI Training Center in Weston on November 12 in recognition of National Apprenticeship Week. Contractors were given a tour of the training center and shown the renovations and new equipment. Representatives attended from Human Resource Development Foundation, Easley & Rivers and Gheens’ Painting. Each partner attending was given a Certificate of Appreciation, seen being presented in the pictures.
National Apprenticeship Week (NAW), now in its fifth year, is a nationwide celebration that gives businesses, communities, and educators the opportunity to showcase their apprenticeship programs and apprentices while providing valuable information to career seekers.
Thank you to our partners. By working together, we can accomplish much.
Dan Poling, BMST
