International Training Institute for the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Indust

The International Training Institute for the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Industry (ITI), formerly known as the National Training Fund, is a joint labor-management trust fund created in 1971 between the Sheet Metal Workers' International Association (SMWIA) and Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association (SMACNA). ITI's mission is to develop training curriculum, educational support, and instructor training for the sheet metal and air conditioning industry. Students are enrolled in local apprenticeship programs sponsored by the local labor-management Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee.

Instructors are journeyperson sheet metal workers who participate in a five-year instructor training program administered by the ITI and Ohio State University. This program ensures the highest quality training and education for those in the apprenticeship program. ITI's materials and programs are available only to local Joint Apprenticeship Training Committees in the United States and Canada.
