Painting & Wallcovering

Painters and wallcovering professionals work in a wide variety of commercial and industrial environments on projects that last from a few days to several months.

Painting and wallcovering apprentices learn blueprint reading, surface preparation, color harmony, wood finishing, use and care of state-of-the-art tools and equipment, spray painting, decorative finishing wallcovers, and health and safety regulations.

In 2009, MFT delivered a 7-week Painting Pre-Apprenticeship Program that was held Monday through Friday from 7:00 am - 1:30 pm for a total of 210 Related Training hours. Those participants successfully completing this program are eligible for the Painting and Wallcovering Apprenticeship Program once they have acquired a job with a signatory contractor.
