NTCA Apprenticeship Program Accepted by Dept. of Labor

Flowood, MS, June 5, 2019-The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) is pleased to announce it has received formal acceptance into the National Apprenticeship System from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

In a letter dated May 23, the DOL informed NTCA that its National Guidelines for Apprenticeship had been reviewed and found to be in compliance.  

The NTCA Apprenticeship Guidelines Program, which combines field experience with online learning and designated classroom training, is designed to provide members an opportunity to attract new skilled labor into the ceramic tile industry. The program will offer guidance to NTCA members in developing their own tile finishers and tile setters apprenticeship programs. 

Currently, assistance in developing apprenticeship programs is available only to NTCA members. Potential apprentices do not have to be members.
