On Wednesday, January 12, 2022, representatives of the Miami Valley Apprentice Coordinators Group participated in an outreach event highlighting career opportunities in the Construction Industry and the Military.  Coordinators from the Carpenters & Millwrights, Ironworkers, Painters & Finishers, Roofers, and Sheet Metal Workers training programs met with Junior and Senior level students of Trotwood-Madison High School.  The Representatives shared information on their respective programs, as well as provided general information on all career opportunities in the building trades.

The Construction Industry offers apprenticeship training in a dozen different trades.  Each apprentice program is 3-5 years of in-classroom and on the job training to prepare apprentices as skilled journeymen.  In-classroom training is provided tuition free and typically apprentices receive college credits for completed classwork; while apprentices earn a competitive wage and benefit package for training hours worked on the job under the mentorship of an experienced tradesperson.
