IFTI: Curriculum Committee Meetings Crucial to IUPAT Training
Superior training and curriculum is what separates the IUPAT journey workers and apprentices on a job site from our non-union counterparts. One of the most crucial ways we ensure our curriculum and training remains state-of-the-art and up to date is the formation of curriculum committees. Each year, the IFTI selects trainers and journey workers from the field to participate in these committees to work page by page through current curriculum in our crafts and suggest and write the updates they deem necessary. It is a nearly year-long process done by remote and in person at the IUPAT International Training Center in Hanover, Maryland.
