The International Training Institute (iTi) surveyed more than 2,300 industry apprentices to gather demographic information and ascertain how they learned about the sheet metal industry, their experiences, and their perceptions. This project was done in cooperation with the SMACNA/SMART Best Practices Market Expansion Task Force.
The Task Force will use the information gained from the surveys to develop recruitment tools, programs, and strategies that can be used by labor and management groups at the local level. An overview of the survey is now being shared with all chapter executives, volunteer leaders, and SMART Business Managers to understand emerging trends better. Please see the Best Practices Co-Chairs memo and the survey overview below.
