About Us:
Finishing Trades Institute is the northern Nevada training facility for District Council 16 Apprenticeship Program.  The history of the Painters and Allied Trades Apprenticeship in the west started at the same time trades unions were founded.

The Apprenticeship programs back then, as is now, was a means for a person to learn a set of skills and craftsmanship that would command a better than average wage. Over 20,000 apprentices have graduated through our programs to become successful crafts persons throughout the years!
