What is the STAR Program?

The STAR Program was designed entirely for you—to help you build the skills you need to succeed. And it’s offered to you at no charge—all costs for training and recognition are covered by the STAR Program. With STAR Training, you can build your skills and be recognized and rewarded for your achievement. Training is provided by the nationally recognized District Council 16 Journeyman and Apprentice Training Trust Fund.

To get started, you must take the Survival of the Fittest/ ICRA COVID-19 class. This one time class is required for STAR eligibility.

To be eligible for the STAR Awards:

  • You must have completed 8 hours of Mark Breslin “Survival of the Fittest” training or ICRA/COVID-19 Awareness (in this year or a prior year – one time only)
  • You must have completed at least 16 hours of STAR sponsored training (Survival of the Fittest or ICRA/COVID-19 Awareness counts against this total) during the current training year, training year runs from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022. If you completed Survival of the Fittest or ICRA/COVID-19 Awareness in a prior year, you must complete 16 hours of training from other available classes.
  • If you cannot attend a scheduled STAR class, you must contact the STAR Program 2 weeks in advance to cancel your registration and avoid penalty.*
  • You must have worked a minimum of 500 hours for a STAR Program contributing employer during the training year.
  • You must be a member in good standing in the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades at the time of the awards event.
  • You must be present to win
