Marie Patton of Active Workforce Donates to CTI Fund.

We want to say a BIG thank you to Marie Patton, Director of Operations and Safety, for her donation to our student tuition support fund.

Active Workforce is a women owned company who we admire and support in providing quality employees in the construction industry. They are also a member of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC). Craft Technical Institute believes in the inclusion and empowerment of women in construction and hope to see many more join our classes in future.


The Student Fund

Help members of the underserved communities in and around Buffalo, NY, realize a career in construction through a scholarship! We need $15,000 to assist students to enroll at our trade school.


The Craft Technical Institute, Inc. (CTI) is licensed by the New York State Education Department as a Construction Trade School. It is housed in a 7,000 s/f facility consisting of offices, classroom, bathrooms and a 10-station welding lab to accommodate SMAW, GMAW GTAW and FCAW welding processes. The facility is situated at street level and is accessible for the disabled.


Craft Technical Institute Inc (CTI) offers a 600 hr., 6-month "Weld to Work" course. Applicants must be 18 or older, have a high school diploma or GED, be in good physical condition, be able to read, write and understand English, and have average use of at least one hand and one arm, and have good eyesight.


We are deeply interested in providing quality training, especially in underserved communities, in order to fill the gap in the labor shortage. However, for many, the tuition has proven to be cost prohibitive. We want to set up a scholarship fund for motivated students who will successfully complete the program but can't afford the tuition. This course is a chance to support members of underserved communities, become practically skilled, and boost the American economy by creating a trained, skilled workforce of the future.
