Established in 1987, The interior Finishing Systems Training Centre (IFSTC) was created to address the apprenticeship training and journeyperson upgrading needs of drywall and acoustical applicators, drywall finishers, EIFS (stucco) mechanics and hazardous material workers across Ontario.

Over the past 25 years, the IFSTC has flourished, evolving into one of the finest facilities for drywall training in the province. each year, over 200 apprentices complete various phases of the in-class portion of their apprenticeships at the IFSTC.

In addition, several specialized journeyperson Upgrading and health & Safety courses are delivered at the IFSTC such as First Aid Training CPR and AED, Blue Print Reading, Layout and Certificate of Qualification Preparation Courses.

The IFSTC is governed by a group of trustees acting on behalf of four organizations that represent both the industry’s workers and their employers. These organizations include the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, Local Union 675; International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, Local Union 1891; The Acoustical Association Ontario; and The Interior Systems Contractors Association.
