Empirehouse is proud to congratulate our 2017 Graduates of the Finishing Trades Institute of the Upper Midwest: Glassworker Kevin Giusto; Glassworker Mary Hoffer; Glazier Andrew Henricks; Glazier Tom Gramenz! Pictured with our Graduates are Glaziers IATC Member Warren Harder, Glazing/Glassworker Coordinator Brian Hagberg, Glazing/Glassworker Instructor Tony Osborn.

Apprentice Glassworkers and Glaziers participate in a three-year program before becoming Journeymen and Journeywomen. This training includes day school in addition to 6,000 hours of on-the-job training. These apprentices receive education and training in all phases of the trade necessary to develop as a skilled Journeyman. Congratulations to our own Journey[wo]man Glassworker Mary who is the first woman to have completed this program with the Finishing Trades Institute of the Upper Midwest.

Congratulations to our newest Glaziers and Glassworkers who graduated on May 24, 2017.
